During your leisurely walk, be on the lookout for the giant weta - at three inches in length, it’s one of the biggest insects in the world! Then, you'll drive to the Otari Native Botanic Garden and Wilton's Bush Reserve, New Zealand's only public botanic garden dedicated solely to native plants. Another scenic drive takes you through the heart of the city and back to your ship.
