Things to see and do in Wellington
Your car hire from Wellington Airport is a great way to explore not only the city itself, but all that lies beyond. The picturesque waterfront downtown is home to Te Papa National Museum, parks, cafes and beaches. Courtenay Place is where much of the action happens, especially after dark, and during the day there is plenty to see on the Cuba Street walking mall. Climb Mount Victoria for great views over the city.
Hit the highways to explore the North Island. Twin cities Napier and Hastings and the beautiful Hawke’s Bay region are just a few hours to the north and boast not only lovely beaches and a lot of sunshine, but some world-class wineries. In the centre of the island is the Central Plateau which holds a trio of stunning mountains making up Tongariro National Park. The great Lake Taupo is beyond that, and from there Auckland is not too far. For sunny beach towns, continue into Northland or head east to the Coromandel Peninsula.
The New Zealand road system is well-maintained overall, safe and pleasant to drive on. Stick to the speed limits, wear your seatbelt and make the most of your car rental from Wellington Airport.
