Owner description: The highlight to any visit to Wellington is a trip on Wellington Cable Car. In just 5 minutes you will reach the top of the Botanic Garden where panoramic views of the city and harbour 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 (free entry), 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.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities, Baby buggy parking

Good experience however not the best if cloudy as the view is the attraction as well as the ride.

Great fun for a short ride and the view is worth just going up and catching one back down again however one can buy a coffee.
