Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, sits near the North Island’s southernmost point on the Cook Strait. A compact city, it encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. From Lambton Quay, the iconic red Wellington Cable Car heads to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Strong winds through the Cook Strait give it the nickname “Windy Wellington.”
It may be called by its nickname “Windy Wellington”, but ironically, the day I was there, it was picture perfect. There was not a cloud in the sky, the cool breeze was flowing and not a sight of storm. This was the moment filled with the right temperature on perfect sunny and cool day with an adventure on the list for the day out to explore what Wellington has to offer to its visitors. As the day begins with the populous of Wellington city go about doing their daily routines, I started the day out by driving up to Mt Victoria. I wanted to enjoy this breath-taking views while it was a clear day before it gets too windy and unpleasant to be on the mountain top. As I made my way to the top I was greeted with the panoramic view of the city. I was just speechless and I was totally impressed with what I just witness. Every turn we made, we were faced with the views of the city, the hills and the ocean. It was just breathtaking and unbelievable phenomenal. I wasn’t gonna miss out on the view, I had to take a photograph of the city in its splendour. This 360′ view from Mt Victoria was absolutely amazing.
