Windy Welly – Day 2, Kiwi Capers

What a windy old day in Wellington! We started off with a quick bite to eat and caught the cable car from Lambton Quay to the quaint suburb of Kelburn. We enjoyed a great view from the top before heading out to visit Zealandia. Zealandia is a protected sanctuary where some of New Zealand’s most rare and extraordinary wildlife thrive. After hours of walking trails and birdwatching, my sister and I embarked on some beer tasting at four local breweries – Garage Project, Heyday Brewing Co, Whistling Sisters and Fortune Favours Beer. We sampled some delicious brews and nibbles before turning in for an early night, ready to catch the Bluebridge ferry tomorrow morning.

My favourite photo of the day, is the no. 2 cable car heading into the station, with a view of Wellington in the background.

Wellington Bound – Day 1, Kiwi Capers

Well, departure day is here! After spending a lovely time over the Easter long weekend, with family and friends in Canberra, my sister and I are off to Sydney International Airport, ready for our flight to Wellington. Ironically, the hotel we are staying at is located at “1 Bunny St”! We found this amusing and are looking forward to the adventures that await us. We will arrive around midnight (New Zealand time) and we have our fingers crossed for a smooth and uneventful trip.

See you on the flip side…
