Explore Wellington - New Zealand's Capital City
by Roy Witman © 2009

Situated at the mouth of a stunning harbor with a backdrop of lush, rolling hills; Wellington, NZ is a picture-perfect setting for fun and romance. Whether you come seeking adventure, entertainment, culture or love; Wellington delivers.

A Rare Find

Kapiti Coast isn't known as “Nature Coast” for nothing. In addition to numerous species of rare and endangered birds, Kapiti offers some exceptional examples of local culinary talent. This internationally known sanctuary and marine wildlife reserve is open for curious nature lovers who want to explore. Hop aboard a ferry and spend the day (or weekend) making friends with birds, watching dolphins leap from the sea and relaxing on the large deck, which overlooks the ocean. Virtually the only island in the world that is totally predator-free, Kapiti Island is truly remarkable.

Let's Get Moving!

For those who long to get up and go, Belmont Regional Park will be to your liking. Covered with hills and valleys, it seems Belmont Park was created just for those who are always on the move. Excellent territory for walking, running, mountain biking and horseback riding; your efforts will be rewarded with phenomenal views. Eleven walking paths and five mountain trails guide you past refreshing waterfalls and glistening streams. Pack your sneakers, your water bottle and your camera for an afternoon of fitness, sightseeing and adventure all rolled into one.

With Tarzan swings, obstacle courses and water slides, this unique environment will keep your kids entertained for hours. And what will you be doing? Adults can participate in aquayoga, hydrorobics, swimming and other fun activities.
