What happened on the islands sitting in the middle of the harbour? Why was the harbour so important for Wellington? Who owns it? Let our guide uncover the stories of Wellington harbour before providing you with classic kiwi fish 'n' chips for lunch as you head over on the ferry to explore Matiu/Somes Island.
If you may make it over to the Island without having to share the delicious fries with the ferry operator, you will have a full stomach and be ready to uncover the stories of the islands at your own pace. There is information to read on the Island, birds to view and remnants from the world wars.
You will be able to choose which ferry you return on but we recommend staying for as long as you can. The Museum is open until 5pm, so there is still time to come back and continue to explore or save your legs for another day.
