Overall a must visit location in Wellington. Make sure to take cable car...

  • I love the gardens. Haven't been to any like this before. In between the hills you need good walking shoes as there's a lot of up and down tracks. Can spend ages walking round all the different ways. . Perfectly located next to the Wellington tram 🚋 car. No need to o walk up or drive up. And a great cafe right next door. Amazing views from the lookout in the gardens as well. .

  • HUGE gardens with an amazing view of the city, Well worth coming to. Entrance into the astronomy building isn't cheap, but you can enjoy all of the park facilities for free. The rose gardens are also super nice and well worth visiting. Bring a picnic!

  • Wonderful botanic garden with great and creative ideas for plants and sculptures. You can easily spend at least an hour here on a great day. The view is also quite good. Many plants and trees with many information about them.

  • I go here every couple of years, and each time I wonder, "Why don't I come here more often?" It's big enough to not get bored wit the layout, and the scenery changes frequently. Beautiful.
