Nice views of the city and waterfront. Find a seat, drink your coffee, watch the world go by. Well, the world according to wellingtonians.

Fun to walk along this bridge and overview the lagoon in front. And go to the Karaka Cafe if you are lucky you could see the waka on the side gallery of the Cafe.
