Location, Climate

Planning your vacation to Wellington? Here are some things you should know about the city. It is the capital and the second most populous city of New Zealand; on a map, you’ll find it on the Southern edge of the Northern Island. Its inhabitants like to call the city various nicknames, and this is how Wellington came to be known as Welly, Windy, Wellywood, or even Harbour City. The climate here is perfect for sun lovers: with 169 sunny days per year, your tan will not get white here! However, the city is known to be very windy and during winter the southern blasts can make the temperature feel really cold. Usually, the average temperature in July is 6-11 degrees Celsius and in January it is 13-20 degrees Celsius. The degrees can go up to 31 during hotter days, though… Otel hopes you’ll enjoy wonderful weather while staying at Wellington hotels!

Brief History

How did the English county of Somerset, Wellington, came to be adopted by a city on the other side of the world? Well, New Zealand’s capital bears the name of the Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley. However, in Maori Wellington is known under three names: Te Whanga-nui-a-Tara (or The Great Harbour of Tara), Pōneke (transliteration of Port Nick), and Te Upoko-o-te-Ika-a-Māui (The Head of the Fish of Maui). It is said that Kupe discovered New Zealand and the area of Wellington in the 10th century. Europeans came here much later, in 1839, and in 1865 Wellington was officially called capital city of New Zealand. Wellington is known to be a city with a high seismic activity because a fault passes right through its middle.
