One can park the car to view the farm and the surrounding coastal areas - pretty breathtaking views. Anothe wind turbine farm is located near... More

It is a very short walk from the car park (anyone can do it) and the views across Cook Strait to the South Island in one direction and the city in the other are stupendous. Standing underneath the turbine and looking directly up at it can make you dizzy (the kids love it!). take a light jacket even on the... More

Not only do you realize the size of the wind turbines but the views around Wellington from up there are amazing and well worth a visit. Don't forget your camera and make the most of panoramic shots.

A nice walk from the lower car park, with amazing views of the South Island & Wellington from the top! Half way up the road, there are some army barracks a couple of mins walk off the road. Some awesome views from there of the city too!

This is at the top of Brooklyn Hill which is about 10 minute drive from the city. Sometimes we walk up which takes an hour or so (one way). Up high like this you get a great view of Wellington and experience some of that Wellington wind that makes you feel alive. You don't need much time here apart from... More

Great views from the wind turbine and had some informative info nearby about it - lacking in some seating area perhaps?? Hence 4 stars instead of 5.
