The only downside to visiting gorgeous Wellington on New Zealand’s North Island?

Constantly smoothing down your hair – it’s the windiest city in the world.

But with this virtual tour, your ‘do (and your skirts) will stay in place as you explore some of the city's highlights.

A range of 360 videos are available on the WellTown Youtube channel that showcase some of the best things to do in the city. Marvel at works on display at the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand; feel the buzz of the crowd as you take in the pregame entertainment for an All Blacks game; and peek inside the Weta Workshop, the Oscar-winning special effects company made famous for its work of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

If you want to take the virtual experience to another level, and have a Steam or Oculus VR headset, there are a series of free virtual reality games available to download, too. There are six experiences, ranging from busking on one of the city’s hippest streets to taking a dive in the beautiful harbour.
