Wellington Region


When Wellington’s weather turns bad, it can be truly foul: lacerating winds and sheets of freezing rain coming in sideways. Bus shelters look more like houses – it ain’t called ‘Windy Wellington’ for nothing...

November to April are the warmer months and the best time to visit, with average maximums hovering around 20°C. From May to August it’s colder and wetter – daily temperatures lurk around 12°C.
