Better view than Mt. Victoria

Better view than on Mt. Victoria, but quite windy. You can go there by car or you walk like 3 km up the hill (which is exhausting).

Well worth the trip out to have a look. The scale of the farm is huge and it's really cool to get up close. The whole area is a big nature reserve (imagine saying that about other forms of power generation!) and there are various walking and mountain biking tracks (signs outline the options).

The wind farm is were a communication station used to be. There are displays with old photos of the sites, and you will be aware of the miserable life operators (and their families) got there. Howling winds, miserable weather. But when clouds open... then you catch a glimpse of the non touristic NZ

Wow, what a knockout view. Almost think it is more beautiful than the Mt Victoria view. Brilliant to also walk up to the turbine rather than driving up.

Outstanding 360 degree panaramic views of New Zealand's capital city Wellington, fantastic & sunny in Summer, a blistering nightmare in Winter but through all seasons it's worth the trip to view the city's surroundings.

Hardly an attraction. Views aren't bad though we arrived there by accident. Not what I would rate as an attraction these days with thousands of the monstrosities all over the world now.

Read a few reviews about the Wellington Wind Turbine so had to suss it out. Very well worth the windy trip up the narrow roads. The view itself is fabulous and there is one turbine to view up close. Plenty of walking & bike tracks to enjoy too

From a distance, yes it has some visual interest. Up close it is a little interesting. But if we'd just gone up to see this and nothing else I'd have considered it a poor use of time given there is so much to see in Wellington. Go for the view but don't expect to much from the turbine - unless... More

I have lived in Welly for a few years and heard a lot about this place but thought I would have to drive to see it. My friends told me to come for a walk and we ended up there and I have found my new place to go when I have visitors. Awesome.

Another great view of Wellington besides Mount Victoria. Super windy as well but great place to soak in the view.
