Wellington celebrates the Magnificent Sevens

Travel News Asia Friday, 2 February 2007

New Zealands biggest fancy dress party (and of course, superb festival of rugby) - is one of the growing number of events which help make Wellington the event and party capital of New Zealand.

Wellington is abuzz with activity, as rugby lovers converge in record numbers on the New Zealand capital for the annual NZI Sevens, today and tomorrow, Saturday, 3 February.

The city turns on two full days of fast-paced rugby action and the partying continues off the field, with rousing entertainment and extreme costumes throughout the event, as well as a multitude of bars and clubs to visit every evening.

Wellington is a city with plenty of reasons to party, and the Sevens is just one of the annual events which enables locals and visitors alike to let down their hair, said Sarah Peacock Australia Marketing Manager for Positively Wellington Tourism.

If rugby is your game, then the annual Sevens tournament is a great way to combine your sport of choice with the excitement,  charm and party atmosphere which Wellington offers to Australian visitors, said Miss Peacock.

But even if rugby is not your sport, the Sevens - and a host of other events throughout the year - add a great atmosphere and excitement to the city, enabling visitors to not only see Wellington, but to experience it as the locals do.

Wellington is just over three hours flying time from Australia, and is served by more than 50 flights per week from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast.
