Entire climate change plan in NZ is a waste of time. it is two islands of 5 million deplorables. There is nothing they can do to stop climate change, they will go under water and sink. They need to accept that reality and move to other countries like the other 1 million that have abandoned the Islands.

Great place to visit to have a look at the stunning scenery. Situated high up above Wellington the views are spectacular.

Once you have seen one, you have seen them all.
At least this one turns most of the time since Wellington can get quite windy.
Not a big fan of wind turbines since they can kill birds and their intermittent operation means that backup power is always required.

Sheep everywhere - and a nice walk to the stand under the turbine. Fantastic view of the water below.

But a great view to be hard and to see a turbine up close without a long walk interesting facts to read on the board too

We went with a few people for a Sunday walk through the Brooklin wind turbine. At the top, there is information to tell you about this place and when it was updated. The walkway is really good and the view from the top is amazing!

This attraction is something to do, it isn't massively exciting or not a place you would spend ages but it is worth going up for a look to experience being under such a large structure and learning how that one turbine powers 450 homes in the area. The view is the most incredible part of the experience. 360 degree views and over the harbour you can watch the boats come and go. I wouldn't want to walk up to the top personally because taking the car give you the exact same end game lol.

Yup, it's a wind turbine!
No seriously it's an interesting place to see if you like a bit of engineering.
If that doesn't float your boat there's always the walking tracks and the view is stunning. You're able to see the whole of Wellington. Would be a great spot for a sunrise landscape photo.

We visited The Wind Turbine on the weekend, first time since I was at school. Very windy up there but all part of the experience. Lovely information board to give you facts about how it was built. Fantastic views of Wellington from up there. Pretty cool to visit if you have a car and want to explore all areas of Wellington

I regularly walk up to the Wind Turbine along the Zealandia Sanctuary fence line from Highbury. It's a great walk although you have to watch the slippery loose rocks that can cause a fall or two on the way down. The view from the top at the Turbine is fantastic and great for photos with Wellington and the Harbour as back drops.
