The Wellington Cable Car is one of Wellington’s oldest & most popular tourist attractions. The cars run from Lambton Quay in the heart of the central business district and within 5 minutes whisk you from under the corporate towers of The Terrace past Kelburn Park and Victoria University to the top entrance of the Wellington Botanic Gardens with its magnificent lookout over the City and harbour - Te Whanganui-a-Tara (The Great Harbour of Tara).
Other attractions immediately accessible from the top station are the award winning Cable Car museum situated in the old cable car winding room, the Carter observatory (Due to reopen July 2008) and the Skyline Restaurant.
For those wishing to explore further, Kelburn village with its shops and Cafes is a short walk and an ideal stopping off point on your way to Karori Wildlife Sanctuary.
There are also easy downhill walks through the Botanic Gardens to Thorndon or back to Lambton Quay via the historic Bolton Street Cemetery and the Beehive.
