The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 10 Wellington, NZ

We have a pre-ordered breakfast delivered to our room and pick up a rental van for the day. First to Southward Car Museum: "The founders and benefactors of the trust, Sir Len Southward, KBE, OBE and Lady Vera Southward, began collecting cars In 1956 when they purchased a Model T Ford for £40. This vehicle has been given pride of place in the museum and remains in the condition in which it was originally bought."

We are amazed that this truly world class facility is not teeming with visitors. This vast collection includes many microcars including: a bond bug, goggomobil, isetta, Fiat 500 & Suzuki CV1.

After a quick lunch, we drive out to: The Wellington Tramway Museum was incorporated in 1964 as a non-profit organisation to preserve tramcars and other items of tramway interest, to establish and operate a working tramcar museum and to foster an interest in tramways generally.
Comuter train into Wellington - taxi from station to Hotel where we crash out.
