We are delighted to welcome you back!

You are cordially invited to Nairn Street Cottage’s intimate summer tours. Gain a fresh perspective on Pōneke history through the oldest home in Wellington.

Uncover the stories of three generations of the Wallis family women who owned and made the cottage a home. Glide through the decades as you move through the immersive experience. Each room is dedicated to a different family member and decorated according to their era and style. In the Visitor Centre next door, discover the wider historical context that influenced the cottage’s construction and changes.

Find the authentically presented heritage garden in the backyard. Complete with a chicken coop appropriately called ‘The Fowl House,’ the garden is a perfect example of living history.

Discover old-world charm, five minutes from the city. Book your private tour now for groups of up to four friends and family members.

Tours available Saturday – Sunday with tours on the hour between 12pm – 3pm.

Entry by tours only.

Door sales available, booking recommended.
