With a nickname such as "Windy Wellington" you could be forgiven for thinking Wellington is not a place to visit, however this is far from the truth about this vibrant, bustling compact city. Wellington is New Zealand's capital city and sits on the North Island's most southern point on the Cook Strait, hence the nickname! Wellington features a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. The harbour sits on a hook-shaped mass with great ferry links to Picton on the South Island. Iconic Wellington sites include the red Wellington Cable Car, Wellington Museum, Zealandia Wildlife reserve, Wellington Botanic Gardens and Mt Victoria Lookout.
Picton is picturesque seaside town in New Zealand, often referred to as the Gateway to the South Island. Ferries run all year round across the Cook Strait to Picton from Wellington on the North Island. Picton is nestled at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound, in the stunning Marlborough Sounds and is one of New Zealand's prettiest seaside towns, with an attractive seafront dotted with cafés, restaurants and galleries. From Picton you can hike or moutain-bike across the Queen Charlotte Track, one of the finest and most diverse coastal tracks in New Zealand, or take a half-day guided sea kayaking tour along the western end of Queen Charlotte Sound to see eagles rays, cormorants, little blue penguins, seals and dolphins.

04 Mar 2019Much what one would expect of a ferry.
Loading and unloading seemed a bit laborious, but it did seem pretty much 'full'. There were more people than seats, at least it seemed that way. Breakfast was a long queue with a bit af a struggle to get a table to eat it. Journey was great, arrived on time.

While everything was efficiently dealt with and on time, there are a lack of facilities- not enough seating or toilets.
