On a wildly windy wet day we climbed the steps, quite a lot up to the very top and although it was freezing it was worth the climb! The views are spectacular, 360 degrees. You can drive to the car park and if steps are not for you then you can still see plenty.

Easy to access Mt Vic from the Copthorne. You can do a great bush walk for an hour before breakfast.

Simply the best view of Wellington. After a short cablecar ride, we were at the top. The garden there was pleasant to stroll around. it would have been nice if the café there was opened, however, we walked down to the Kilburn Village that took us about 20 mins, where we had our refreshment.

We drove ourselves up to the lookout, but noticed there was a bus stop up there so assume public transport access is possible. The best view one could ever wish for - especially at sunset.

This is an delightful way to spend a fine Wellington winter day. Both the natural and the built environment are of a very high standard.

We walked up here from the city centre. The view at the top was good - you could see into the city and over the bay, which was very nice.

Came up here to do a geocache and was blown away by the view. Literally. Wellington is a windy city and it was windy when I visited. Fabulous views though, a gotta visit experience.

It's worth driving or getting the bus to the top because from there you have a fine view across the harbour, the bay, the city and the airport.
