Why Wellington?

The hashtag #WhyWellington started as a marketing exercise but took on a life of its own as hundreds of Wellingtonians wanted to share with the world what makes our city so special. This week, Wellington gave us a reminder of why we choose to live here with a spectacular dusk and sunset. We started at Zealandia and then headed up Wrights Hill in Karori, where we were treated with fire and glory looking over Makara and ethereal pastel shades over Wellington City. The clouds looked painted on!  I've put together this slideshow so you can enjoy too.

Hi Judi. My name is Ben. I started the #WhyWellington hashtag and associated social media accounts in 2014. Just wanted to point out that it wasn’t a marketing exercise. More info here:
