Know More about this tour

Meet at the Wellington i-SITE Visitor Centre to start your journey in a dedicated shuttle that takes you to Weta Studio Tours.

Your knowledgeable driver will highlight iconic Wellington film sites as you journey to Miramar. On arrival at the Weta Cave, snap photos with our life-sized sculptures, wander through our mini museum, and take a seat for our exclusive documentary, which includes interviews with Richard Taylor and Peter Jackson.

A Weta Workshop crew member will then guide you on a tour through a converted area of the Workshop.

Hear our tales of filmmaking, see artists working on our tour stage, and learn secrets of movie magic! Conclude your journey with a return shuttle to central Wellington.
