Wellington is not only the capital of New Zealand but also the Creativity Capital of New Zealand. With the emphasis that New Zealand is putting on creativity and innovation, Wellington is a step ahead of most of the country according to Infometric. With its designation, it’s only natural that I would want to experience the city myself.
The first stop is at the Weta Cave, where the wizards involved with movie magic, have set up exhibits and allow people to explore “the Lord of the Rings” as well as their other movie making productions.
With only two days in Wellington, the rest of the sites are going to get short shrift, unfortunately. Zealandia looks cool and can be combined with a trip on the cable car and the botanical gardens. The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa appears to be a creative mecca with interactive exhibits. Cuba Street looks like it explores the freer side of being creative. The Seal Coast Safari could be fun as well.
