A Ride on the Cable Car

The cable car coming up the hill

Our favourite way to get from Lambton Quay, in the city, up to the Kelburn entrance to the Wellington Botanic Gardens, is to take the Cable Car up there.

In the cable car  at the Lambton Quay Station

Salem still gets a great thrill and has to stand up and look out the windows at the fantastic view of Wellington City and the Harbour.
The Cable Cars have been going for 110 years now and long may they continue going up and down the hill.

The iconic Wellington Cable Car

At the top of the hill is the Cable Car Museum which is always worth having a look around.
There is also the Carter Observatory and Planetarium which we love visiting.
And of course the Wellington Botanic Gardens.

  1. This kind of cables are mainly used in rail car and through this rail can move at continuously speed. Individual cars stop and start by releasing and gripping this cable as required.
