Wellington Holiday Lettings for Art and Nature Lovers
Staying in a holiday letting in Wellington means enjoying the comforts of a modern city flat while never being too far from nature. Choose from colonial-style cottages, modern glass apartment blocks, or house rentals, many with beautiful views over Wellington Harbour. With museums, restaurants, and outdoor attractions concentrated in a small physical area, it's easy to cover the capital city on foot.
The best art spots in New Zealand’s creative capital
When it comes to art galleries, theatres, music, and street art in Wellington, you're spoilt for choice. Start your artistic exploration at the City Gallery in Civic Square, showcasing modern and contemporary art exhibitions.
It's also worth paying a visit to the Dowse Art Museum, with its large collection of Maori and contemporary art. This free museum is located north of the city centre in the Lower Hutt district, and is easily reached with a direct bus.
End your day with a walk along Victoria and Cuba streets. These central thoroughfares feature lots of little art galleries, boutiques, and gourmet restaurants that give Wellington its unique character.
Outdoor and cultural activities kids will love
It's not surprising that many holiday lettings in Wellington offer children’s amenities: the city’s small size and abundance of natural diversity make it a perfect family holiday destination.
If your children love exploring the outdoors, take them to Zealandia, an impressive ecosanctuary where native animals—including kiwi—live in the wild. The wildlife reserve offers visitors a free shuttle service westward from the city centre. The Botanic Gardens, partly composed of native forest, can be reached via a scenic cable car ride from the waterfront.
To discover more of New Zealand’s history, visit the Te Papa national museum located on the waterfront. Admission is free, with plenty of engaging activities. Children and adults alike will love the Wellington Museum, where they can hear fascinating stories about Wellington Harbour's maritime history and immerse themselves in the interactive exhibits.
The best craft beer and live music in Wellington
What could be better than a city with lots of live music venues and bars, all within walking distance from each other and close to most holiday lodges? Wellington packs a lot of fun into its smaller size.
Start your night out with a walk along the waterfront, where you'll find craft beer and cocktail bars with a view of the harbour. Then, head to Courtenay Place in the city centre and let the crowds guide you to the best music venues. Move onward to Cuba Street's pedestrian haven, with its buskers and hipster hangouts.
Wellington is proud of its locally-produced craft beers, which combine traditional ingredients with distinctive Kiwi flavours, such as hot horopito and peppery kawakawa. If you happen to visit in August, don't miss Beervana, a two-day beer and food festival.
