Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Greater Wellington / Wellington / Oriental Bay
Boasting sandy beaches and a bustling promenade, Oriental Bay represents one of Wellington's most fashionable and desirable neighborhoods. Soak up the lively atmosphere on a leisurely stroll before going for a paddle in the bay's clear blue waters. A much beloved fountain sits off shore, creating an impressive spectacle with its 16 m (52 ft) spray, while a disused wooden barge provides a welcome resting and sunning spot for swimmers. It's a good idea to bring a jacket with you on your visit as the bay can get very windy. Use our Wellington day trip planning app to arrange your visit to Oriental Bay and other attractions in Wellington.
