WHERE TO GO

The Weta Studio Tours Combo departs daily from the Weta Cave shop: corner of Weka Street and Camperdown Road, Miramar, Wellington. Open 7 days a week (closed Christmas Day).

Collect your tickets at the Weta Cave ticketing desk at least 15 minutes before your tour starts.

PLEASE NOTE

  • Our tours frequently sell out, particularly during peak season (Oct-April).  We strongly recommend booking online in advance.
  • Photography is strictly prohibited in our tour spaces.
  • There is no luggage storage in the Weta Cave or at our tour spaces.
  • For groups of 20 people or more, please check out our Events & Group Tours.
  • The Miniatures Stage Tour takes place in a functioning workshop, so it can get a little drafty. We recommend bringing an extra warm layer or two, especially in winter.

A short return transfer is included, from the Weta Cave shop to the Miniatures Stage tour space. The transfer portion is not suitable for wheelchairs. If you have special requirements, please contact us at bookings@wetaworkshop.co.nz
