My husband and I are going to get the ferry from Wellington to Picton and then the scenic train from Picton to Christchurch. We're doing this on either 6th or 7th Feb. The 6th Feb is Waitangi Day, when I understand some events happen in Wellington. The question is; are they 'not to be missed'? Should we stay in Wellington for Waitangi Day and then travel on the 7th? Cheers!!
