I love to go here whenever I have friends or relatives over as the views of Wellington from up here are nothing short of spectacular! A full 360 of Wellington CBD, the airport, Sommes Island and if it's snowed the white coated Rumataka range. When they say you can't beat Wellington on a good day, this is a place to... More

One of the best views of Wellington. It's a long walk up and that is not advised, but if you have a chance of a bus trip or a car, well worth a visit. You can see the port, the city and sea from one side and the airport from the other. You'll see Wellington's green areas and the city... More

Road up to the look out reminded me of San Francisco...winding and hilly and narrow in many places. Once you are there, you park (very limited parking) and then have to walk and climb some stairs for a rather unspectacular view of the city and surrounding areas. Not impressed.

Great place to see Wellington from the airport to city and ocean views. Tough but stimulating walk up or drive if you prefer. Buses available too from downtown.Recommended.

A great view of Wellington from the top, which is great. Otherwise, there isn't much at the top and parking is limited.

I highly recommend a visit to this Wellington lookout, not only does it offer a fantastic view, you also get information about geology and history.

The views over Wellington and the surrounding area (on a good day) are fantastic from the top of Mount Victoria. But watch out for the mountain bikers who have little regard for others!

The drive up Mt Victoria is superb - very steep but spectacular views. It was windy up there - of course! - but not as bad as I expected so it was a great trip up and back.
