    Personally I just love Cuba St

    "Wellington’s famous inner city slice of bohemia, Cuba Street, is a place with culinary and creative soul. It’s where people meet, busk, shop, dine and the best place in town to soak up the capital of cool’s culture. The street has been a registered Historic Area under the Historic Places Act since 1995." From the Wellington website.

    It's one seriously cool street with plenty to do, the food is especially fantastic. Check out El Matador - Cafe, Asador Grill & Bar for beautiful Argentine tapas, wines, and steaks!

    Also, head over to Mexico Wellington at 41 Dixon Street, name drop me to Chris Dobson, the manager, he'll look after you. He's one of my closest friends in New Zealand and makes fantastic cocktails!

    Have fun!

    In the city you should check out Te Papa Museum and Cable Car Lane as well as walk around Oriental Parade. From there head up to the top of Mount Victoria for awesome views over the city. Weta Workshop is worth a visit, where they make a lot of props for movies, Lord of the Rings etc. Grab a coffee in Seatoun
