  • If you walk along the waterfront you'll pass the bridge. The rough wooden sculptures are worth watching

  • This bridge is very artistic and is in constant daily use so has become part of the city scape. Very interesting and if you are strolling around Wellington you will definitely come across it.  more »
  • First thing I had the chance to see arriving at Wellington, it's a really nice spot where you ask to read, write, pic fuck... A beautiful view and close to the city.
