Truby King Park

Truby King House and Garden is a heritage-listed estate nestled in Melrose. The estate was once home to Sir Truby and Lady Isabella King - founders of the Plunket Society.

Bolton Street Cemetery ki Paekākā

Originally a site for Māori burials from the time of their settlement of Te Whanganui-a-Tara, the cemetery began European burials from 1840 and is Wellington’s oldest European cemetery. Many of early Wellington's notable figures are buried here. The cemetery offers a tranquil and historically interesting escape from the city, just minutes from the centre. There is a heritage rose collection inspired by original graveside plantings. Blooms peak from November to December.
