What to Expect
Cable Car tickets can be purchased online prior to arrival or at the Ticket Office at arrival. Tickets are valid for 6 months after purchase. We recommend purchasing your tickets online to avoid any potential queues, especially during summer in Wellington. The Cable Car journey takes about 5 minutes to travel one way. Once you arrive at the top you can walk down through the beautiful Botanic Gardens (20 - 30 minutes). If you purchase a return journey you can return at anytime.

Definitely a must do when you are here. We sat next to a local who pointed out various landmarks going up. The view up the top is amazing and although windy we had a perfect view.

We liked hopping on the cable car and travelling to the summit to soak in the views. Cablecar itself is merely transport, obviously not much going on in itself, but was clean and comfortable. Ticketing was quick and easy and you don’t have to wait...More
