Parliament Buildings : Beehive, Parliamentary House & Library
A visit to the Capital City would not be complete without a visit to NZ's beautifully refurbished Parliament Buildings. Located in the historic suburb of Thorndon, the complex is made up of three architecturally distinctive buildings: the Edwardian neo-classical Parliament House, the Victorian Gothic Parliamentary Library and the unique 1970's style Beehive building.
Wellington Botanic Gardens
Over 26 hectares of specialist gardens, native bush and lawn areas. Located in the garden are: the Education and Environment Centre in the aptly named Treehouse; the Lady Norwood Rose Garden, with over 106 formal beds; the Begonia House; the Bolton Street Memorial Park, where many of the city's pioneers are buried; the Carter Observatory, New Zealand's national astronomy centre; the Sundial of Human Involvement and a great adventure playground. Garden tours are available by prior booking or prior request.
The other attractions of Wellington include National Library (housing the most comprehensive collection of books in the country), and the Katherine Mansfield Memorials (the property where the famous author was born in 1888). In addition, a zoo and stunning views of the city from the top of Mt Victoria. Cuba Street has great shopping, Thorndon has historic sites of interest, Lambton Quay is the primary business street and Mt Victoria is the place to go for cheap accommodation and dining. The treetop walk at the Native Plant Museum is also worth the time.
