It has been announced that Wellington Airport are to go ahead with building a Hollywood lookalike “Wellywood” sign. Of course this is to acknowledge the nickname that has been given to Wellington arising out of the international success of Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor’s Weta Workshop in the film industry. Their home base of operations is in Miramar, just over the hill from where the proposed sign is to be positioned.The reaction to this news has been pretty one-sided with the majority of people being strongly opposed. Check out some of their comments here. On the one hand a lot of people had a bit of fun…while there were many who saw no fun in the scheme at all.

My contribution to the argument is…
You can create your own Wellington here.

Of course if you are flying into Wellington aboard a QANTAS flight, this could be an appropriate sign to see!!

  1. Hi there, a very good read and it sometimes just takes someone to post something like this to make me realise where I’ve been going wrong! Just added the site to my bookmarks so will check back now and then. Cheers.

  2. Thanks for another fantastic post. Where else could anybody get that type of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such info.
