Wellington Cable Car
The Wellington Cable Car is New Zealand’s only funicular railway, dating back to 1902. The five-minute ride to the top of the hill rises 120 metres (390 feet) above the city over a length of 612m (2,010ft), finishing at Wellington’s Botanic Gardens, the Cable Car Museum and Space Place at Carter Observatory. You can find the cable car in the very heart of the city, between Lambton Quay and Kelburn. One of the capital city’s most notable attractions, the area is teeming with historical and educational attractions once you reach its summit. Wellington Cable Car opens at 7am, running every 10 minutes throughout the day until 8pm and every 15 minutes thereafter.
