The North Island finishes with a flourish at Wellington, New Zealand's capital and its most interesting and exciting city. Wedged between steep hills, the glistening waters of Wellington Harbour (technically Port Nicholson) and the turbulent seas of Cook Strait, Wellington is, with around 400,000 residents, New Zealand's second most populous city. As the principal departure point to the South Island it is sometimes only afforded a fleeting glimpse, but it certainly warrants a stay of a couple of nights, more if you can manage it.
