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.

“Cable Car”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Went up to the Botanic Gardens in the Cable car then walked down to the city centre. It was quite a long walk back to the city but it was that or climb back up through the gardens to take the Cable cars back down. The path they singpost takes you through a Cemetery and reading the gravestones gives you an insight in to the origins of the people of Wellington.

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