New Zealand’s Film and Culture Capital.

Rolling hills and ocean waves engulf Wellington’s vibrant inner city from all sides. A trifecta of earth, sea, andcity which makes Wellington a great place for travellers. With incredible food, shopping and scenery within an easy stroll from the city centre, visitors can happily explore theCBD from end to end. ExploreLambton Quay and Cuba Street, then wander all the way to Oriental Parade across town (and still haveenergy to explore the cocktail bars and cafes tucked away down one of Wellington’s manylaneways).

With the reputation as New Zealand’s film and culture capital, there are endless events to enjoy in downtown Wellington. Be sure to visit one of the city’s many historic theatres and check out the latest exhibition at the national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa. Other must-sees include the World of Wearable Art if you’re visiting during September – October, Wellington On a Plate in August (a culinary tour of the foodie capital), or the two-day festival CubaDupa in March, which is an eccentric celebration of everything the artistic city has to offer.

For the film enthusiasts, Wellington offers a number of movie tours and experiences – particularly relating to The Lord of the Rings, which, after being filmed in and around Wellington, led to a skyrocket in tourism. Many of the experiences and attractions are located a short drive outside of the city centre:

  • The Weta Cave and Workshop is where many of the props and costumes were created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. It has since been utilised for blockbusters such as Avatar, Blade Runner 2049 and Thor: Ragnarok. Get up close and personal with the props and get hands on to learn how they were made!
  • Mt. Victoria, a picturesque location itself, is recognisable as being the filming location for scenes involved in The Hobbit. Mt. Victoria is easily accessible by car or walking trail and boasts the best views of the Wellington surrounds.
  • The Putangirua Pinnacles, a series of impressive rock formations, are a must-see for fans and non-fans alike.

Wellington is a historic town with Māori legends dating as far back as 950 AD. The city offers a taste of history to pique anyone’s interest:

  • The Wellington Cable Car – Offering panoramic views of the city, no trip is complete without visiting the Cable Car Museum to see the original cable cars from the early 1900s on display.
  • Old St. Pauls Cathedral – Solely constructed of native timbers, it is no longer an operating parish but remains a stunning example of Gothic Revival architecture.
  • Wrights Hill Fortress – Built during World War II to protect New Zealand from a potential attack; a sobering reminder of the threat of war.
  • Te Aro Pa, the preserved remains of a thriving 160-year-old Māori village, discovered during the demolition of a Victorian-era building in 2005.

Hiring a car is the easiest way to see this cool little capital at your own pace. Conveniently located in the centre of town, Hertz Wellington will efficiently help you hit the road during your stay!
