I walk home over Mt vic every day and regularly walk the tracks. Great touch of nature in the city and 360 views from the top which on a clear day show the south island views.

A pleasant trip up on a Tram, great views even in the rain. The cafe was taking 15 minutes for each order of coffee which was pretty disappointing considering everyone was cold and damp. There was nowhere to sit and wait since people were staying at their tables a very long time. Don't count on the cafe part of this... More

Sorry guys but we visited here first and saw the splendid views of the harbour and City with the mountain backdrop. Just lovely and well worth the hike up there. It is stunning.

Looks down on the inner harbour but also right around the city and its surroundings. On a fine day you can just see the S Island. Should not be missed.

Liked the ability to overlook the city and harbor and airport. Windy so hang on to your hat. Price was right in that it was free.

It's a bit of a drive but worth the stop. There are several stairs to climb but if you take your time they are designed to be gentle in their ascent. The view is 360 and quite interesting. Be ready for steady breezes so take a jacket in cooler weather.

We hiked up from Wellington downtown. Finding the start of the path was a little tricky, but the climb was fun - not for the faint hearted as it is quite steep! The views are wonderful.

This is a great vantage point from which to look over the city of Wellington, the Oriental Bay and the Wellington Harbour, A 360 degree vista has to be experienced.
