After another lie in me and Axel went up to Mount Victoria, a point just above Wellington that's meant to give some if the best views of the city. It really was a great view in that you could see the whole harbor and the city - it was also a pretty lovely day as although there were clouds it was really warm.

Next up we drove to Weta Workshops, the place where a lot of the prosthetics and props were made for The Lord of the rings. We watched a demo video and then got a tour around the work shop and it was really surprising just how many films they've worked on; not just LOTR but avatar, the last Sumerian, iron man, tin tin, narnia... We weren't allowed to take photos inside but I did get one with the trolls from the hobbit outside Weta Cave!
The drive from the workshop back to the hostel took us along the harbor road and after parking the car back at the hostel we walked back down and just enjoyed the mini beach and harbor views for a while.

P.S back at the hostel we went into out room to find a man stood there in his underwear, which was a bit if a surprise, and now the room is really smelly...
P.P.S he also snores
