The ICSB conference offers you a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit New Zealand and we know you will want to spend some time visiting all the attractions that our beautiful country has to offer, whether it is bungy-jumping and jet-skiing in the South Island or enjoying our thermal pools or our world class wineries in the North Island.
From culture to coffee, music to movie-making, Wellington’s sights and sounds will leave you wanting more. If you’re into the outdoors we’ve got action-packed adventure activities to picturesque walks around the beautiful harbour and hills. Come celebrate our culture at Te Papa or come face-to-face with the closest living relative to a dinosaur at ZEALANDIA. Get a taste of Wellywood at the Weta Cave movie museum or just watch the world go by at Oriental Bay, Wellington’s golden sand inner-city beach.
In addition you can take in a wine tour, cooking class, food tour and much much more. For ideas and to make bookings with local tour operators go to http://www.wellingtonnz.com/sights_activities.
