All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission



Visit Wellington's iconic Government Buildings. With imposing facades, sweeping staircases, cast iron fireplaces and kauri clad interiors, the Government Buildings are among the finest examples of New Zealand's architectural heritage. Like many colonial buildings of last century, they were built to resemble an Italian stone palace in an attempt to convey strength and stability in the expanding empire. It is the second largest wooden building in the world, and the imaginative use of kauri, one of New Zealand's premier native timbers, could never be replicated in any present day building because our remaining public kauri forests are under permanent protection.

Free guided tours at 11am and 2pm, no booking necessary.
