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.

The brookland wind turbine occupies a prime viewpoint over looking Wellington. Approaching old age the turbine is a fine example of how wind turbine technology has evolved over the last few decades. Information boards about its construction and superb views make this an interesting and unique place to visit.

This place is a must visit if you are in wellington NZ. We were there last week and love the mountain view and the city of Wellington view. Also don't miss Mr Wellington memorial while you up there it is awesome.

It's a bit of a trek outside of Welly but well worth it when you get to the top. Really interesting to read about the turbine and the area also looks good if your into mountain biking. Definitely recommended trip.

Amazing panoramic views from the turbine. Its the place to get up close and personal with a massive wind turbine being able to get access right up to the structure. As you'd guess it was very windy and cold even on a warm day so make sure you've got a jacket. The access up to the turbine can be tricky... More

its is a site in itself, no loos. But, bikers start from here as do walkers to the radar site on the distant shore. take wind proofs and have a flask in the car for when you get back. even a change of clothes for if its raining you will get wet! Mike
