A satisfying seaside stroll awaits on the doorstep of Wellington's central business district.
Large areas of the once-busy waterfront were left idle by the change to more efficient container shipping. Clever planning and considerable investment have restored these wharves and cargo sheds to provide a spacious and entertaining seaside reserve - just for pedestrians.
To walk at the water's edge and enjoy magnificent views of the harbour, cross to Queens Wharf on the City to Sea Walk Bridge, which features large Maori carvings.
Restaurants, apartments and the Museum of Wellington City and Sea now fill this area's gracefully functional historic buildings.
There are a number of interesting memorial plaques and artworks worth viewing. One plaque commemorates Paddy the Wanderer, a dog turned celebrity who was cared for by waterside workers, seamen and taxi drivers from 1928 until 1939.
From Queens Wharf follow the harbour around past Te Papa (the national museum) and Chaffers Marina to Oriental Bay, where you will find numerous cafes and an enticing stretch of golden sand.
Jutting out onto the beach is a great viewing platform and picnic place, which was originally a band rotunda before being converted into a bathing pavilion in 1937.
