Easter in Wellington


Recommended Posts

We will be taking our first transpacific cruise on Princess Golden leaving Sydney in April.  Our stop in Wellington is on Easter Sunday, and I'm wondering if most shops and tourist attractions may be closed.  Can one of you New Zealanders give me the scoop?  Thanks!

Kia ora from Wellington.  I'm sure you were hoping for a straightforward answer, but Easter Sunday trading is mixed around New Zealand depending on local conditions.  Shops in Wellington are most likely going to be closed but the key attractions will be open, so plan on spending time on a tour out to Weta or other offerings onboard, or visiting Te Papa national museum, Zealandia, Cable Car etc.  Sorry you'll miss the shopping this time though!

Thanks for the tips on things we can to do, kiwijo. Much appreciated! We may just take the cable car and then walk through the botanical garden. I’ve heard it is beautiful. With the shops closed at least we’ll save a little money! 😉
