Wellington Cable Car Jan 06, 2010
Very very cheap, and worth the ride. Has a good story regarding the history which was really interesting. When up the top has a nice view of Wellington city. The cable car itself takes you from the bustling city to a nice, peaceful area above it all.... seems so weird in contrast!

From the website:

"Located just a few metres from the cable car’s upper terminus and from a lookout with spectacular views over Wellington, this museum tells the story of the country’s only remaining public cable car system. Visit us to catch up on the service’s colourful history, marvel at the machinery in the old winding room or climb aboard one of the old grip cars.

The museum shop stocks a great selection of Wellington and New Zealand gifts and souvenirs as well as a range of specialist transport books, DVDs and models.

The Wellington Cable Car Museum has Qualmark endorsed visitor activity status and was the 2006 and 2007 Tourism Industry award winner for visitor activities and attractions: culture and heritage tourism.

The museum is open daily except Christmas Day and admission is free."

Wellington sure looks bigger than when I was there in '76! That cable car saved alot of huffing and puffing to where I stayed. Great review - great memories, thanks!
