A day outing to Somes Island

You can't beat Wellington on a good day. Trick is getting Wellington on a good day- when you have a day off!

$62.50 for the ferry trip (family ticket) and $5/head if you want the guided tour.

A thoroughly enjoyable day (when you exclude tardy kids, flat car batteries, expired credit cards, last minute dirty nappies, exorbitant Wellington parking rates, children with eggcup sized bladders...

Having been asked, the ferry trip takes 20 minutes. These is a sealed road up the hill to the quarantine station- an easy ten minute stroll with small children. There are plenty of tracks around the island OK for pushchairs and there are two toilets!
