101 Glenmore St, Kelburn, Wellington 6012, New Zealand
What an amazing place. Food exceptional. Must try gumbo. Drums and bass/techno music of the highest quality. Staff look like they really enjoy being of service. Quick service even though the place was super busy.
The gardens are excellent to visit on a sunny day. There are lots of great parts and if you try to visit the. All it could easily take you most of the day. There is a good rose garden with a cafe and green house. Then going through the main gate are tulip beds and follow the path to a duck pond. The gardens are fantastic for kids. It is pushchair friendly (though it is a good work out as it is built on a hill). With kids, after the duck pond head to the excellent playground via the children’s garden. The playground is very good for all ages and there are toilets there too. Definitely fit in a visit when you are in Wellington.
Wellington Botanic Garden is a very popular place for visitors and locals. Tulips in September is so beautiful. The other flowers are lovely too. Roses are colourful and amazing during summer period. There is a playground for kids at the garden. It's good for the young families to enjoy it.
Stunning gardens and a lovely walk. Highly recommend visiting if you've got fine weather! However if you have any issues with walking up or down inclines it might be one to miss, as I dont think there is an inch of flat land across the gardens!
The Botanic Garden is right in the center of the city with numerous access points. We entered from the top after catching the cable car up the hill, then walked down (there are few track options) along a well marked path that passed various trees, both native and introduced, lots of beautiful flowers, and many local birds. On your way you'll find two historic cemeteries and a playground that is brilliant for children (and when nobody is looking - older children too :)). There are lots of open areas to sit and enjoy the peace & quiet. Lovely spot to spend a couple of hours walking and resting up.
