Took an elderly friend for lunch. Always amazes me how difficult it is to work out the different islands and peninsulas from the windows. There is a map in the look out though. Always good whatever the weather.

Quite a bit of drive up the winding slopes but definitely worth it. Along the way u can get a good view of Mt Wellington too.
