    Our store is based on the Wellington Waterfront. From close to our store you can see the inter-island and local ferries coming and going and you might be lucky enough to spot stingrays, seals and even the occasional dolphin!

    The Wellington Waterfront hosts many events and markets through out the year and is a happening place when the sun is out!

    We'll stop outside Te Papa as it's a central landmark of Wellington on the waterfront. It's New Zealand's national museum and we'll tell you about the current exhibitions. It's just a short walk from our shop if you want to look through at the end of your bike tour.
