With supposedly more bars and cafés per capita than New York, and a packed festival calendar for 2015 / 2016 there is plenty to keep visitors entertained in this awesome city.



Wellington will mark her 150th birthday on July 26 with a two-day long party kicking off with performances from Kiwi musician Dave Dobbyn and the Orpheus Choir of Wellington, and a 3D sound and light show. Visitors can also enjoy a free hop-on hop-off bus tour and gain a rare glimpse of New Zealand’s national treasures, including the Supreme Court, Reserve Bank of New Zealand, Mount Cook Police Barracks and the Katherine Mansfield House and Garden.



To celebrate the milestone anniversary, Tourism New Zealand has rounded up its top tips and little known facts on the world’s southernmost capital, together with some reasons why 2015 and 2016 are the years to visit.
