Welcome to the Wellington Guide! Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and located at the bottom of the north island. We're starting off at Mount Victoria, the best place to get a view of the city. You can get here by bus, walking or driving up from Oriental Parade. The view of the city is stunning, you can see Mirmamar Peninsula, out to Petone and the Hutt Valley.From here we'll head into the city via Oriental Bay.
The series of large, concrete, typographic ‘text sculptures’ designed by award-winning Wellington typographer and graphic designer Catherine Griffiths are sited at various points along the waterfront. Each sculpture contains a quote by a well-known New Zealand writer with strong Wellington connections.
