Wellington, the world's southernmost capital city and New Zealand's second most populous urban area, combines the nation's rugged history and nature with its modern and cosmopolitan present.
Escape the urban bustle at Paraparaumu Beach and Foxton Beach. The Great War Exhibition and National War Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Wellington side-trips: Foxton (De Molen, Windmill & Oranjehof, Dutch Connection Centre), Waikanae (Peka Peka Beach & Nga Manu Nature Reserve) and Southward Car Museum (in Paraparaumu). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Cobblestones Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Bolton Street Cemetery, learn about winemaking at Poppies Martinborough, and see the sky in a new way at Space Place at Carter Observatory.

Expect a daytime high around 16°C in September, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
