Overview
What to Expect
Cable Car tickets can be purchased online prior to arrival or at the Ticket Office at arrival. Tickets are valid for 6 months after purchase. We recommend purchasing your tickets online to avoid any potential queues, especially during summer in Wellington. The Cable Car journey takes about 5 minutes to travel one way. Once you arrive at the top you can walk down through the beautiful Botanic Gardens (20 - 30 minutes). If you purchase a return journey you can return at anytime.

An exciting journey steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful gardens. Walking down to town from the top is recommended as the botanic gardens are well worth a look. The history museum at the top is great. There is a nice cafe at the top as well.
