Wellington Botanical Gardens – Wellington
- While you’re taking in the sights of Wellington, way not take the rail car from Lambton Quay to top of the hill which adjoins to the gardens?
- It’s always good to take a wind breaker jacket when you’re out and about in Wellington
- Listen out for the parrots and the Tui
The Wellington Botanic Garden covers 25 hectares of land on the side of the hill between the suburbs of Thorndon and Kelburn, close to central Wellington. The garden features 25 hectares of protected native forest, conifers, plant collections and seasonal displays. With the near by bird sanctuary we were also lucky to see the New Zealand Native Kaka parrot fly by and hear their calls in the tree’s while we strolled around the gardens.
