Museum Te Papa Tongarewa
We went to this amazing and emotional exhibition called ‘Gallipoli, The scale of our War’ at the Te Papa Museum in Wellington, NZ. Telling the story of numerous men and Women who served in WWI. The depiction of these men and women in giant size proportions were created by the Weta Workshop here in Wellington. The detail of each was just mind blowing and their personal stories very moving. Do go and see it if you are visiting Wellington. #gallipoli #tepapa #tepapamuseumwellington #exhibition #wetaworkshop #tagweta #newzealand #museumofnewzealand @ Museum Te Papa Tongarewa

We’ve tried many of these and would add a couple of our own to the list. Aussies, don’t get started on the origins of the pav!

For all you ‘Boomers’ out there, you will probably have been a fan of the original ‘Thunderbirds’ TV series. Well as part of our visit to the Weta Workshop we went on a tour of the model making division of the remake of ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ series. It was amazing to see the actual models that were created and the special effects used in the making of this series. Unfortunately they don’t allow photos to be taken in the main studios but we were allowed to take some pics in the ‘tourist section’ of the studio. If you’re a Thunderbirds fan, definitely worth a visit. #thunderbirds #thunderbirdsarego #tagweta #boomers #pukekopictures @ Weta Workshop

Today we visited the Weta Workshop Studios in Miramar, a suburb of Wellington not far from where we our housesitting. This is where the Hobbit & Lord of the Rings movies were developed by Director Peter Jackson. A fascinating place to visit and tour if you are in Wellington, NZ. #wetaworkshop #wetacave #lordoftherings #thehobbit #wellington #miramar #wetadigital @ Weta Workshop

Midnight Espresso Wellington
Some pics of our wanderings along ‘Cuba Street’ in Wellington City, NZ. Lots of funky coffee shop and some amazing street art and even a Rainbow street crossing. It reminds us a lot of Newtown in Sydney. #wellingtonnz #cubastreet #cubastreetart #downtownwellington #newzealand #coffeshops #rainbowcrossing @ Midnight Espresso Wellington
