Play WellTown



“It goes beyond looking at photos or watching 360-degree videos – it allows you to actually interact with the location and immerse yourself in its offerings through gamified experiences, all without having to pack your bags, find a dog sitter, or book a flight.”
VR Scout

“You no longer need to spend roughly one billion hours on a plane to get to New Zealand. WellTown takes you there in an instant using VR.”

“Each [game] has a vastly different style and method of engagement, making it as much a fun showcase of VR as it is of Wellington itself.”

About This Game

WellTown injects you directly into the bloodstream of New Zealand’s creative heart via virtual reality. With the assistance of an outrageously lovable local, you can choose from a range of experiences inspired by actual attractions while situated on the breath-taking vantage point high above Wellington city. Absorb the dawn chorus of New Zealand’s native birds amidst the beautiful native bush that surrounds the city. Busk on Cuba St as the new drummer for local band, the Orchestra Of Spheres. Run a coffee cart in crisis as the morning’s zombified commuters converge upon it for their caffeine fix. Take a jump off a diving platform on the waterfront or a dip in Wellington’s beautifully clean harbour. And be surrounded by the serenity of the star-filled night sky and welcome Matariki, Maori New Year.
