Peak season

The capital city of New Zealand, Wellington, is located at the southern tip of the North Island on the edge of a sweeping harbour. Nicknamed ‘Windy Wellington’ by locals, it’s true that the city experiences lively gusts most of the year due to its exposed location on the Cook Strait. Still there’s much about this cool little city to charm visitors into taking cheap flights to Wellington, even if it’s just a stopover before heading north or south. From December to the end of February is generally the busiest time of year for visitors to Wellington. The warmer summer weather also coincides with the school holidays, so don’t be surprised if flight tickets are markedly higher than normal at this time. Wellington is a foodie city so be sure to check out some of its numerous cafes, restaurants and bars to sample the local produce and creative cuisine by top chefs. Popular events people book flights to Wellington for include: the Wellington Rugby Sevens in February, the World of Wearable Art (WOW) awards in September and the Toast Martinborough Festival in November.
