Wellington - Kiwi Getaway
Finding the Ultimate Kiwi Holiday
In mid February I'll be spending a week in Wellington. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some things for me to see and do. Places to eat and shop would also be appreciated (especially for music, books etc)

So any suggestions?

I'm not from Wellington, but have been there a few times.
One of the Cafes we frequented was Fidels, though I'm not too sure where it is. Possibly somewhere on Cuba st near Real Groovy. Also The Krazy Lounge (also on Cuba) is a good place to hang out if you want to people watch.

The City Gallery is good if you like that kind of thing, and if you like books there is a great bookstore, either Busy Bees, or Buzzy Bees. My memory isn't that great sorry.

You should head for Cuba St anyway, they have a lot of buskers and people hanging out who would probably know where any good bands are playing.

hope that helps some

All the best

Some great suggestions, thank you. I've just finished getting all the pre-booked stuff sorted out (flights and accommodation) so will be good now to focus on what my plans are once I actually get there.

I'm really excited, last time I was in Wellington was for a stop-over when I was 11 (didn't leave the airport so that doesn't really count) and before that I was 5 when I last spent time there.

I plan on checking Cuba Street out.

Once I've come back from my holiday I'll post some pictures and stuff about my trip on this community.
