Your Welly wish may come true

A new online wishing well is offering a novel way to enjoy Wellington.

The campaign was launched yesterday by Positively Wellington Tourism and was intended to showcase "the coolest little capital in the world", PWT general manager marketing Sarah Meikle said.

Wishes that can be experienced include a day of lawn bowls, an eight-course dinner for four at Hummingbird, a bathtub of champagne at The Library bar and an exclusive planetarium viewing with Carter Observatory.

The wishing well allows users to select from a series of wishes. When they "throw" it into a fountain, it enters the wish into a draw. One wish will be granted each day this month.

It can be found at www.wellingtonwishingwell.com.
