Welcome to WOW Wellington
WOW Wellington (What's On Where)- is New Zealand's newest information portal to encourage and assist travellers, visitors, and tourists to Wellington - New Zealand’s most colourful and vibrant capital city that has so much to offer both locals and visitors alike. Cleverly perched on the edge of a beautiful harbour and surrounded by rolling hills, Wellington is a city that's just waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
Do you have a Local Event coming up?
Tell us about it and we will list it for you for free on our CALENDAR
Plan Your Visit to Wellington before you arrive and find out where to stay, eat, shop; or what to see and do, or simply take a tour of the city that we love. Or if you are one of the lucky devils, who already live here, you can find out what's happening around you.
Here you can also find out the history of Wellington and how we came to be.
As a growing information portal for visitors to Wellington, WOW Wellington invites contributions from all the good people of Wellington - local businesses, clubs, event managers, hospitality providers, tour operators etc who can offer our visitors a home away from home, an unforgettable experience, and memories to take away with them.
WOW Wellington's primary focus is to provide a resource for travellers to Wellington with demographics and offerings that are second to none.
WOW Wellington's vision is to position and promote WOW Wellington as an information and communication resource for first-time comers and visitors to Wellington and we will continue to put more useful information on this website which will develop in time with the support and contributions from the people of Wellington and the greater Wellington region.
Come on Wellington people, let’s take the opportunity to heap our guests with a great big Wellingtonian welcome to the city we love so much and are proud to show off. You can help with advice, suggestions, and information for those newbies who know nothing about Wellington, for which we provide a discussion board. We appreciate all constructive feedback to keep information accurate and up-to-date.
As we grow this website with you for our visitors, we apologise for its rudimentary appearance while we are still "gumboot-strapping" it and developing a model for it to become a good Wellington community portal for newcomers.
We invite contributors who would be willing to work with us on stories and articles for this WOW Wellington website, moderate for now in its community forum, discussion boards, and classified ads. Please help us pump up the gas, and show what we are made of!
