Wellington Botanical Garden, Wellington Reviews

  • With a huge range of beautifully manicured native and imported plants you could easily spend a full couple of days here. A veritable maze of walking tracks means that you can easily get away from the crowds and enjoy the scenery. The cafe near the rose garden offers a good variety of high-quality food and drink. The best way to get here is from the top of the cable car.

  • Awesome walk...great paths for prams, strollers and pedestrians. Easy walking for the two young children. We took the cable car up and walked down. Gardens were well marked and had a good variety of species. Staff were also very helpful.

  • Fantastic summer and autumn views. Great indoor plant centre to see exotic plants. Good shops and restaurant. Beautiful view on top block with the cable car. Fun kids play ground and duck pond (feedings available at the tree house) highly recommend for a family day out. Parking is coupon parking zone. Weekend free.

  • Beautiful gardens which deserve their wonderful reputation as a must see for an out of towner. Catch the tram up, visit the observatory and walk down. Also you can use your snapper card to go up on the tram. The lookout is wonderful.

  • A sanctuary of nature within the city. Always a new path to explore. Great place for kids, dogs, young and old. Love the tulip display in spring and the lights in winter. So lucky to have this resource in Wellington.
