Classical view of Wellington from the top cable car station
"A true Wellington icon. Wellington is a hilly city and this is where the cable car comes into its own.

The Salamanca Road station (one before the top) allows a short walk to Victoria University and the Hall of Residence." Read more about The Wellington Cable Car
