Wellington Cable Car celebrated 110 years of service to the City in 2012. A favourite of locals and visitors alike, the cable car allows easy access from its terminal on Lambton Quay in the CBD to the top entrance of the Botanic Garden and the Kelburn lookout which offers stunnign views of Wellington. Three intermediate stops allow for easy access to local residential and business addresses and at Salamanca access to the Kelburn campus of Victoria University.The terminus at Kelburn is adjacent to the Cable Car Museum (free entry) which houses two of the original cable cars. A level two minute walk in the gardens takes you to the Carter Observatory and Planetarium and a free shuttle operates regularly from outside the cable car museum to Zealandia. The Kelburn Village is only five minutes walk away and the Botanic Garden has a number of interesting downhill walks which take you back to the city centre in 40 minutes.
