Mount Victoria is a decent-sized hill that offers great views of the city and harbour, especially on a sunny, clear, blue-sky day! It is located close enough to the ferry terminals that it makes a great attraction at which to kill some time prior to boarding a ferry between Wellington and Picton. If you are feeling adventurous or in need... More

Easy access, great views of every part of the city. A fine day essential for the best results. Plenty of free parking provided. 360 degree views from the summit area.

This is just the best possible view of Wellington. It's free and I'm sure that you can get up here by car or by tour bus. On a fine day it gives you an unparalleled view of the city. This is especially interesting if you know the city a bit, but there are displays and signs to tell you what... More

We live not far out of Wellington city, and over the years we have hosted many, many visitors, ----- some from other parts of New Zealand, and some from other countries. We enjoy taking them on a drive around out beautiful capital city. Whatever the weather, it is a 'must' that we take them up Mt. Victoria. And yes, I... More

It is very nice to walk up around the streets with beautiful and cozy houses and their different mailboxes, breaking off every 5minutes to admire the outstanding landscapes! You can't go to Wellington without climbing it!

We were lucky that it wasn't windy that day and the weather was sooo good. Loved the view from the lookout and we could see the Wellington airport as well.

Enjoyable walk up and fantastic view. Many different ways to walk up (or taking public transport) depending on fitness level. Great way to walk off a day of great food =D

I live here in Wellington and took friends who like a walk - not a major hike - up to the look-out. If you are a walker, you might enjoy a walk to the look-out up Palliser Rd and then down Alexander Rd, right down Constable St and then a wander back through Newtown back to Courteney Place.
