This IS Wellington's best and most easily accessible view point. The 360 degree views are breathtaking... especially on a windy day (hold on to your kids!). But nothing can takeaway from the extraordinary views - to the west, the bustling CBD; to the north the harbour, Hutt Valley and Tararua Ranges, to the east Miramar Peninsula & the Orongoronga Ranges,...

This is a must-see. The views over the bay are phenomenal. You can see the Wellington Airport in the distance, and watch the plane taking off over the spectacular bay, mostly towards you.

If you want to be blown away (either by the wind or the view) this is the place to do it! You can drive here, bus here, ride up, or walk. If you feel up to a bit of bush walking, head up one of the numerous town belt tracks from the city to the Lookout. So close to town... More

We got up Mt Victoria and felt like Frodo and Sam because of the wind, the curved path, the bowing trees, the desolation...What a feeling! Up there, we had magnificent views of all of Wellington city and of Wellington himself (the statue of course).

The panoramic views from the top are just superb. It gives a really good overview of the City. If you cannot make it to the top there are stop offs which look nearly as good!

Short walk for a great view at day or night. Do it! It's not too difficult and the walk itself is nice too.

Easy to drive up and walk to the summit. Great to see the bay, the cricket, the airport and lots of tourists!
