  • This is a delightful way to cross from the Civic Square to the Frank Kitts Lagoon. The whole bridge is made of wooden sculptures and looks like something out of Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. I...  more »
  • A nice walkway from the City to the Wellington waterfront. Admire all the sculptures and carvings and the fabulous view of the Harbour from here. Great for Guy Fawkes night. 
  • Its a great place to take photos from with 360 degree views of both the lagoon and the town square. Check out the art museum nearby too.
