FOR IMMEDIATE USE … December 2021

Wellington’s historic Wrights Hill Fortress is cancelling this year’s Open Day on December 28th because of the current COVID-ORANGE restrictions.

Society Chairman Mike Lee says it’s regrettable, but the group wants to make sure everyone is kept safe and well.

ORANGE Code restrictions mean that social distancing would be necessary, and the Society is unable to control or manage this. The emergence of a new strain of the virus causes more uncertainty.

The Society will open up the Fortress when Wellington changes to GREEN status, next year, hopefully for Waitangi Day, February 6th or ANZAC day, April 25th.

Admission fees are $20 for a family, $10 for an adult, and $5 for a child under 15. Bookings are not necessary and self-guided tours take about one hour. Cash only please>

This is the fourth cancellation, over two years, caused by COVID 19 restrictions. Please refer to our website for further information. Bookings from private small groups of more than ten people may be accepted on our website.
