2 days in Welly  (2 Answers)

Hi, this weekend I am going to Wellington and spend 2 nights there (booked a $15 Auckland-Welly roundtrip via Manabus). Estimated time of arrival is around 8am - so I have 6 hours to spend around the city before I can finally check in YHA hostel. My places of interest would be:
-Cable Car
-Botanic Garden
-Weta Cave
-Te papa
-Mt. Victoria
-Cuba Street

For my first day I plan to visit Weta cave and Cable Car/Botanic Garden and then maybe have dinner at Cuba Street. Next day I plan to go to Mt. Victoria (free tour from YHA) and then Te papa.

Would love to hear if you have any suggestions on my planned activities!

Cheers,

Haydee

Quickest way to get to Te Papa Museum from the Wellington Airport  (2 Answers)

I am arriving from Auckland into the Wellington Airport at 2:40 in the afternoon and want to go to the Te Papa Museum that closes at 6 pm. Is it feasible to go directly to the Te Papa Museum and have them hold our luggage? Would it be better to go to the Wellington Rydges hotel first? Would a taxi be the best way or is there a bus from the airport that would go near the museum? Karen Kohn

Bike tours and other things in Wellington  (1 Answer)

My wife and I will be visiting Wellington in February for the NZI Sevens rugby match. We'll be staying at a hotel near the Botanical Gradens and Anderson Park. We are in town but for a few days (6 days I believe) and two of those days will be full of rugby revelry, and a good amount of jet lag, I suppose.

We will see Te Papa, and some other sights I'm sure.

I am interested in bike tours of Wellington and the nearby area. Does anyone know of a reputable bike tour operator in Wellington? I've checked a few websites...but they ALL make themselves seem great. I am looking for some local or travelers with good experiences with bike tour companies.

Sorry it's a bit wordy, my first nigth shift of the week.

Thank you
