What people are saying:

The 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.

    Nice wee trip

    Had a great trip up the cable car. Went exploring through the botanical gardens and then came back down on the car too. Great views at the top.
