Kelburn, Wellington – The Property Managers Guide

Kelburn is a central suburb of Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, situated within 1 kilometre of the central business district.

Kelburn has been my family’s home for the past 14 years. Our two sons grew up and went to school here, and my wife and I will spend our retirement here. I wouldn’t live in any other Wellington suburb again.

— David, Kelburn resident of 14 years

Everything you could need in a suburb, five minutes from central Wellington.


One of the Capital’s oldest and wealthiest suburbs, it is only minutes from downtown, but is cushioned from the urban hubbub by its elevation, complete with panoramic views, and the Botanic Gardens.

Kelburn also has a village atmosphere, with the Church of St Michaels & All Angels, its own butchery, bakery and pub, and a mix of cafes and boutique shops that include one of Wellington’s most colourful antique dealerships, Peter Wedde.

Kelburn’s also home to an iconic tourist attraction, the Wellington Cable Car, which links the city to not only the suburb, but also Victoria University.
