Getting here

Tākina is in the centre of Wellington – New Zealand’s geographical and political heart.

Tākina is located in Wellington CBD’s cultural precinct, within easy walking distance of key transport links, entertainment and dining options, and thousands of accommodation rooms.

Wellington is ideally located in the middle of New Zealand, providing easy access via air, road, train, or even ferry. Wellington Airport is a hub for domestic flights and only a short direct flight from Australia’s east coast.

The trip from the airport to the city – 15 minutes – will be the longest commute visitors will have during their stay in Wellington.
