Wellington Cable Car & Museum
Connecting busy Lambton Quay and the tranquil Botanic Garden, Wellington's cable car has been a popular mode of transport for over 100 years. Built to connect downtown with the expanding suburbs, the cable car is also popular with tourists seeking maximum views. Photograph the dramatic city and harbor backdrop, tour the small museum detailing the history of the cable car and then make your way back down via tree-lined walkways or another ride on the funicular. There's also a free shuttle bus to the Zealandia wildlife sanctuary.
