Observation Deck
Cable Car
chinadesk1The Wellington Cable Car departs from Lambton Quay Street, with a total length of 612 meters, a crawling 120 meters, and an operating time of five minutes. Board the cable car from the bustling business district to get a bird's eye view of Wellington's city and the vast coast. The terminal is the entrance to the top of the Wellington Botanic Garden. Currently there are only two cable cars in opposite directions, which can carry 100 passengers in total. Passengers are local residents as a means of transportation, and most of them are tourists. The adult one-way fare is $4, and the price of buying 25 tickets at a time is half the price ($1 = 4.6RMB). The cable car runs every ten minutes, from 7:00 to 22:00 from Monday to Friday, starting at 8:30 on weekends and holidays and ending one hour earlier. In order to ensure safety, there are two manual brakes on each car, with overload warning function settings and earthquake protection functions. There is a cable car museum at the terminal on the mountain, which is also worth seeing, free of charge.

Wellington is also one of the best deep-water ports in the world. The weather is warm and sunny under the influence of oceanic climate. Wellington is a fault zone, with the city built on hills, except for a flat surface on the sea. The port was badly damaged by a major earthquake in 1855, and it is now rebuilt after 1948. Wellington is on the Gulf, with its high ground and often hit by sea breezes, and windy for most of the year, so it is called the Wind City.

Here, all the character scenes and props in the Lord of the Rings movie can be easily found, as if you are in the movie. These props do everything It's very lifelike, especially the characters, which look like alive and amazing. I have to admire how powerful these craftsmen are.
