Wellington Harbour with Cruise Ship

Wellington Harbour with Cruise ShipDuring the Summer months massive cruise ships visit Wellington’s harbour, docking at Aotea Quay.  They absolutely fizz with people keen to explore the city. Some take the walk into town, and some the shuttlebus or a taxi – everything is just a short walk away once you are in the city itself.

One of the most popular attractions is ‘Wellywood‘. OK, this isn’t just one place, but there is a lot of information here, including a downloadable Wellington Film Map with lots of locations.  The Roxy Cinema and Rivendell are two special places worth a trip (The Roxy features in a future Middle Earth Monday!)

    My human brothers have been to NZ several times. They loved it. Last time was your Winter and the one son who went that time, and the family he stayed with vacationed in the South Island.

    Cruise ships come to Nova Scotia all the time but never to where we live. Good thing, too ’cause… you know… we’re nowhere near the water!

    Purrs,
