Your Instagram Guide to Welly

Feb 13, 2018  ·  3 min read

Art, brunch, music, style … all the wonderful aspects of Wellington.

In honour of all the things that we love about Wellington, we’ve sussed out some stellar Instagram accounts that are informative, helpful and downright enthralling when gazed upon.

Here are the Wellington-obsessed IG accounts that’ll have you double-tapping, swiping up for a link, tagging a mate and then, before you know it, it’s 3am.


It’s all in the name – all things Welly, all the time – Love Welly is here to help you explore the city. From the stories behind local murals to some serious food porn enticing you to try something new … it has it all.

“There’s an awesome story behind this mural by Stephen Templer! Back in 1924, as legend goes, two burglars broke into a local chicken factory and tried to crack into a safe using dynamite! They got away with 15 shillings (about $200) Have you seen any other murals on Egmont Street? #lovewelly.

A perfectly picturesque insider’s guide to the coolest little Capital. Look out for Love Welly’s signature blue heart when you’re scrolling through your feed.


Designer, influencer and product stylist, Stacy Heyman is one talented girl that can’t be pigeon-holed to one genre. One of the most aesthetically pleasing accounts we’ve ever laid eyes on, this gal is the epitome of good vibes for anything related to beauty and relationships to sips, eats and soaks.


With more places to eat and drink than New York City per capita, picking where to meet the girls for brunch or the best places for a night cap can be tricky. The girls at Capital Eats and Wellingnoms have you covered. It could be a pop-up event, your next place for social club or a trusty place for your Friday fives, we ‘hand on Gucci Marmont bag’ trust anyone who considers brunch a sport.

Also, swoon-worthy DIY indulgences features on the regular to assist with your eats at home. These babes have all bases covered.


Lucy Revill , is a born and bred Wellingtonian sharing the stories of people, places and products growing in our hometown. Her Instagram is an extension of her blog, The Residents, where she interviews Wellingtonians’ doing good, weird and all things creative. Extremely active across all her channels, The Residents’ powerhouse brings her audience one step closer to the local community, one familiar face at a time.


A digital scrapbook of why Wellingtonians agree with the whole ‘World’s Coolest Little Capital’ title. So, there is this dude named Ben. He’s relatively new to NZ. People always ask me, “WhyWellington?” Help Ben answer that. It couldn’t be simpler than #whywellington.
