Named capital of New Zealand in 1865, Wellington was first settled by the Maori around the 11th century. Europeans arrived in the mid-1800s. The compact centre is easy to explore on foot. Take a nocturnal tour of Karori Wildlife Sanctuary to meet some colourful inhabitants. People-watch while sipping coffee in lively Courtney Place. Discover the city's Maori roots at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea, plus more of its identity at the Museum of New Zealand. Survey the city from scenic Mount Victoria.
