Wellington is imaginatively positioned at the geological central point of New Zealand. The city blooms between a picturesque harbour and forested green hills at the southern tip of The North Islands. However, the city is also situated on a geographical default line and so remains prone to earthquakes. Two devastating earthquakes of nineteenth century nearly flattened all the accommodations of Wellington. Today it is a vibrant and scenic cosmopolitan with diverse and eccentric ambience. The city bed and breakfasts and hostels are usually packed up with the hip-hop crowd from all over the world. Everywhere you go in Wellington, the sounds and smell of the saline South Pacific Ocean hang in the air and green hills and valleys wrap you. Travellers often take apartments for rent in the city to extend their stay in Wellington.
