New Zealand’s most happening street? Cuba St, Wellington

Wellington is famous for many reasons: wind (the city once recorded a gust of 248km/hr), having the most cafes per head of anywhere in the world, being the home of Peter Jackson and his stunning movies which include The Lord Of The Rings epics, The Hobbit, Avatar (and more) and also for their hip slice of urban bohemia. The hub of this is Cuba Street, a diverse and intriguing stretch of shops, cafes, culture, and restaurants, which brings the city together to meet, eat, greet, busk and shop.

Although not originally named for the Caribbean island, the street has taken on a dose of Cuban fever with a mix of brands, independent labels, kitsch, vintage and boutique shops, and more.

The graffiti-filled alleyways and kinetic Bucket Fountain give Cuba a sense of fun, and by night, the street turns colourful, just a little bit edgy.

One of my favourites places in New Zealand, I can’t wait to go back with a loaded credit card… or, erm, someone else’s?
