  1. Have lunch at Maranui Cafe and play at the playground in Lyall Bay

    Do you want to escape the city? Venture out to Lyall Bay for the day. Breathe in that deep sea air and have a nice afternoon by the water with the children. As we know, Wellington weather can be unpredictable – you’re going to want to pack some clothing from Therm just in case!

    After some exploring at the local playground, grab a bite to eat at Maranui Café – the kids will love spotting the planes fly in and out of the airport while enjoying a delicious fluffy!

  2. Get creative at Capital E

    Want to get those creative juices flowing? Head down to Capital E! Know as the “Creativity HQ” for children, Capital E is a safe environment where the little ones can explore, draw, dance and create! With fun activities scheduled every day of the week, there's Yoga for kids, ‘Music Magic’ and ‘Little Creators' workshops.

    Regular events are designed to entertain, educate and inspire our next generation of artists, explorers, thinkers and doers. They’ll enjoy playing with their thinking caps on with activities that promote out-of-the-box thinking.

  1. On Sunday morning, visit the Harbourside Market

There’s truly nothing better than visiting the local market on a Sunday morning! Pack your picnic blanket and your Therm All-Weather Hoodie (a warm, windproof rain jacket in disguise!), and enjoy the buzzing atmosphere of the markets. Enjoy yummy foods like pancakes or dumplings, and pick up some fresh produce for your weekly grocery shop!

  1. Visit The Wellington Zoo

    Have you really visited Wellington if you haven’t visited the Zoo? The Wellington Zoo is a must-visit, even for the locals.
