About this activity
Take a fun ride up out of Wellington CBD, past quaint terraced houses and the Botanic Gardens, up to Kelburn Lookout for magnificent views of the city and harbor Te Whanganui-a-Tara

The Wellington Cable Car has been running for over 100 years and has long been a cherished part of Wellington history for locals.
