Wow, what a city - Wellington is a great little city that supports an arts scene, café culture and nightlife much larger than many cities of a similar size. It is really important in the life of New Zealand's film and theatre industry and second only to Auckland in terms of numbers of screen industry businesses. Te Papa Tongarewa (the Museum of New Zealand), which is a ground-breaking interactive museum, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Museum of Wellington City & Sea and the biennial New Zealand International Arts Festival are all here. Porirua is home to Pataka, a museum of Pacific art and culture. Some famous sons and daughters are film-makers Jane Campion and Sir Peter Jackson; actor Russell Crowe; former All Black captain Tana Umaga; golfer Michael Campbell, winner of US Open 2005; and former British Open winner Sir Bob Charles. Wellington is also the birthplace of author Katherine Mansfield. A growing facet of the economy is the film industry plus television broadcasting with expenditure in the Wellington region more than doubled from $128 million in 2007 to $285 million in 2008. Yes, there’s plenty to see and do here!
