One of the top attractions of town, Wellington Cable Car is a funicular railway running between the stations of Lambton Quay downtown to the famous Wellington Botanic Garden upwards. The distance covered is a thrilling upwards climb and the car uses the cable traction for movement. Covering a distance of 612 m and rising up a steep hill of height 120 m, the trip is a wonderful transition from the chaos in the heart of the city to the beautifully terraced steps on the hills of the Botanic Gardens.
Besides providing extremely gorgeous views of the surroundings and stunning panoramic vistas, the cable car is synonymous with the identity of the town and provides a charming escape away from the hustle-bustle of the city. Besides enchanting views of the city and harbour Te Whanganui-a-Tara, the car also has a telescope which you can use to enjoy the scenery. You can also grab a bite to eat at the top from the Cable Top Eatery or from Picnic Eatery next to the Begonia House in Wellington Botanic Gardens.
