Recent Trip Review

Wellington
April, 2016

The 4-day Wellington trip went very well, with the only unfortunate aspects being one member getting sick and having to return home early, one suit-case almost going on the Picton ferry and another returning from NP to Hawera at the end of the trip! (However it returned safely the next day).

Whilst in Wellington the group visited a number of interesting places which everyone enjoyed. A trip to the WW1 War Museum, Te Papa, a conducted tour of The "Beehive", Weta Workshop, Botanical Gardens and Katherine Mansfield House were among visits made. Some of the group even had a ride in the cable car. On the way home we stopped for a visit at the Southward Car Museum in Paraparaumu.

An additional ‘Plan B’ on our way home turned into a bonus, when Bushy Park had our lunch booking down for the wrong month and were unable to serve us lunch. However, a substitute lunch stop in Wanganui proved most enjoyable (and we still went to Bushy Park afterwards for a visit).
