Options for getting around Wellington

Buses run regularly in and around Wellington. If you are planning to visit something outside Wellington there is a train service run by TransMetro.

The station is a 15 minute walk from Rosemere from where you can travel North to the suburbs or up to the Kapiti Coast or even over to the wine area of the well known Wairarapa winery area. Sample the local produce!

An ideal stopover on your journey to or from the South Island


Wellington is home to the Interislander and Bluebridge Ferry Services to or from the South Island of New Zealand.

The Bluebridge Ferry is a 20 minute walk to/from our hostel and the Interislander is a $10 per person shuttle ride to/from our hostel.

Book into Rosemere for a couple of days and explore the Capital and on your day of departure we can organise your transport to/from either ferry terminals.

An Airport Flyer Shuttle Bus also leaves from outside the terminal and will drop you in the middle of town leaving you a short walk up Dixon Street to MacDonald Crescent where Rosemere Backpackers is located.
