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!

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.

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.
