Any suggestions for a 4 hour round drive from Wellington NZ?

Hi all. We are going to be in Wellington NZ in March 2013 for a very limited time. We have a total of 4 hours to drive out & back to somewhere real nice/scenic. A friend travelling with us is limited in mobility so we will be unable to park and go for any walks whilst on this drive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If I don't get the chance, thanks in advance for your time and help :) Recommendations for an awesome place to have lunch would be great too.

A drive around to Days Bay on the other side of Wellington Harbour would fit the bill. Dining possibilities include the Cobar restaurant and Chocolate Dayz cafe, both of which have views looking out to the beach and harbour.

Also in Days Bay is the Dilmah Tea House, which does a very nice "High Tea".

Another alternative driving route is round the Miramar Peninsula, beyond the Airport. Nice cafe at Scorching Bay, or the ever popular ( but upstairs) Maranui Surf Club Cafe.
