Wellington Cable Car, Wellington Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice view at the top with a wee cafe. The perfumery is definitely worth a visit. Theres a botanical garden and observatory at the top as well. Pretty basic trip up but worth a look especially for only $7.50 return.

  • Great place for tourists to visit. beautiful view of both WGTN harbour & city. Cable car museum is worth to visit too. then you can have a relax afternoon coffee there or go to botanic garden for walk.

  • A great historical trip, especially for the oldies! This cable car has an amazing history, and still lets you experience it! The cable car allows you to go to the botanic gardens, and other locations on the mountain (I’m here for a trip) This is a unique ride Wellington has, whenever you can, do it!

  • The cable car has renovated still with historical features and character and very safe. There are a few stops along the route. At the top there are views of Wellington, the Botanical Gardens and Space Place. A must see attraction.

  • Quaint ride offering great views. The led light show in the tunnel is very nice too.
