GETTING AROUND WELLINGTON'S CBD
Getting around Wellington city by foot is easy - it’s all relatively flat and gives you the chance to see the awesome city sights along the way!
Aside from walking between INVOLVE, your accommodation and Wellington's eateries, we recommend a stroll along the waterfront - and even a climb up Mount Victoria for the fabulous view over the city and harbour if you’re feeling up to it!
There are several bus routes that can take you through the inner-city and stop regularly along Lambton Quay, Willis Street, Manners Street and Courtenay Place. A number of very recent and significant changes to the bus routes and their numbers mean you might want to double-check with your driver or online before trusting the advice of a local friend on which bus to take! The easiest thing to do is go to a bus stop and look at the electronic board and catch the next bus coming along going in the correct direction, but for all specific inner-city bus information, click here.
