Wellington Cable Car

Address:
280 Lambton Quay & Upland Rd, Wellington, New Zealand, 6011 - View the map

Join locals and visitors alike in a historic trip on the Wellington Cable Car. For over a hundred years passengers have enjoyed the dramatic views of our growing cityscape and the surrounding hills that define Wellington's harbour.

Departing from the heart of the city centre (Lambton Quay), the iconic Cable Car is well worth the short, but steep journey to the top of Wellington Botanic Garden where panoramic views of the city and harbor are the reward. You can also visit the Space Place Observatory here. Before you head back down make sure to visit the Cable Car Museum, which provides a history of the city's symbolic mode of transport and see the original cars and winding machinery on display.

There are walking tracks that start at the top of the Cable Car if you're keen on a stroll back to the city. The Cable Cars leave every 10 minutes.
