For a stunning overview of the city of Wellington and harbor, ride the cable car from Lambton Quay (behind the downtown shops) up to the hilltop district of Kelburn. The cars move along a cable in the ground, not in the air -- it's a very scenic and pleasurable journey.

the Zealander sanctuary was good but had to keep waiting for others to catch up, we should have been given the option to go ahead on our own, we were supposed to have morning tea, but they had a function on so was cancelled. The Cable car was full going up the mountain so we went up in the coach and came down, was not what was described so disappointed.

we independently went around wellington by catching the shuttle bus to the tourist i site centre and then went and done the cable car ride to the top of the hill and then had a look around and went back down and found a nice old style pub and had some expensive battered fish but was well worth it. And then went to the tu papa museum and walked around their it was very interactive for the children and then went back onto the ship to be ready to sail off again. we seen a massive sting ray in the water near the museum where the children climb up the some stairs and can dive into the water.
there is also a cab you can pay to take you around the sites of wellington for $60.00 it was a pity we did not know about this before we walked around wellington.
