Origin of the name of Wellington
The earliest name for Wellington, from Maori legend, is Te Upoko o te Ika a Maui. In Maori it means ‘The head of Maui’s fish’. Caught and pulled to the surface by Polynesian navigator Maui, the fish became the North Island&
Situated at the southern tip of the north island, nestled between a dazzling harbour and tree-lined hills. Compact and village-like in nature this city has everything to offer from the great outdoors to the celebration of nationhood at the national museum Ta Papa, which has a large range of exhibits, some of which are presented in an interactive way.
You will see them all! Either choose the City Panorama option that takes in views of Wellington Harbour and the Brooklyn wind turbine. On a fine day we even enjoy views of the upper South Island and Marlborough Sounds. Or choose the Harbour Cruise that will take you directly over Wellington Airport, enroute for the outer suburbs of Eastbourne and Petone. From here you will track across Wellington Harbour and Somes Island before viewing the city centre including Te Papa and the Beehive.
