Checkmate is the coolest name for a gay sauna :)

I loved Wellington when I was there this year. Lovely city. SM's is beautiful and the IVY is tre-cool with all it's hip artsy wannabes.

Try and find somewhere to stay in the flat part of the city... walking up the hill to your hotel once the sea level entrance has closed is killer!

Close your eyes for the aircraft landing... particularly if it's windy!

Shit restaurant chains in Australia are also shit in NZ! @Hogsbreath

Looking at the guy in the red underwear I realise I could, in fact, do a new zealander, but only if he didn't talk

My partner and I both love Wellington. We go over every 6 months (for special occasions). Te Papa is awesome, and one suggestion (that didn't appear in the article) from us would be 'The White House' on Oriental Bay. Any cab driver will know it. Hardly signed, and completely inconspicuous, it has to be Wellington's best restaurant. It's a bit pricey (but cheaper than most fancy aussie restaurants), and you'd need to book in advance to get a table by the big bay window - but the degustation menu is superb. As a fan of a good degustation menu, having enjoyed the best, this one is in the top three.
