Visitors can see unique sights on Cook Strait
Travellers will have a chance to see wild landscapes while on solo holidays in Wellington, according to a travel writer.
Teresa Levonian Cole, travel correspondent for the Daily Express' travel website tripideas.co.uk, expressed her belief that the city is home to some unique sights, especially the famous Cook Strait which separates the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
She said: "Signs warn drivers to 'slow down, penguins crossing', while the more remote hilltop houses, accessed via their own private cable cars, have bird's eye views of the seals and orcas that play in the waters and the snow-capped Kaikoura mountain range beyond.
"What other city boasts such wild landscape, a mere 25 minutes from its Victorian Parliament buildings?"
Ms Cole advised travellers to visit the Te Papa Tongarewa museum which focuses on the natural wonders of New Zealand.
Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and has a population of around 180,000.
