I've walked heaps around Wellington, during the day and at night and never felt unsafe, in fact I didn't even bother owning a car while I lived there for three years. There are area's to avoid if you're walking late at night, like anywhere, having said that I did a fair bit of walking at night and didn't feel unsafe.

Lots of violent crime where there is alcohol, so pretty much the whole inner city in the weekend. Lots of violent crime if you provoke people or respond to being provoked which happens a lot. Vandalism is only around the poor areas where there are rich areas nearby. Daytime is usually too many people around for actual crime due to dense population unless you run into a group of anarchist or a gang down the wrong street in suburbs like Newtown. Nighttime is safe during weekdays but unsafe during weekends. Overall safe, but really depends where you live and if you go out on drinking on weekends.
