Wellington Cable Car

Best views in Wellington

Great way to experience the hidden charm that Wellington has to offer by taking this 5-minute ride from the heart of the city centre, up through the hillside terraced houses of Kelburn, to the lookout perched high above the city. Enjoy easy access to the Botanic Garden, Cable Car Museum, Space Place (at Carter Observatory) and Zealandia (via free shuttle). Also combo deals with Space Place. The cable car runs every ten minutes between Lambton Quay and Kelburn, for the benefit of local residents and visitors alike.
