Which city is the capital of New Zealand?


          Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, is located in the extreme south of North Island. A beautiful city, Wellington is located on the shores and hills surrounding Wellington Harbour known as Port Nicholson. A landlocked bay, Port Nicholson is one of the finest harbours in the world.



          The city is reputed for its spellbinding natural harbour and green hillsides adorned with exquisite suburbs of colonial villas. A good portion of the city is built on land reclaimed from the bay. There are many important monuments in the city such as the Parliament buildings, the National Library, the City Gallery Wellington and the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. Another tourist attraction, the old Government Building, which was built in 1876, is one of the World’s largest wooden structures.
