We drove up to the top on a cool spring afternoon and marvelled at the sporty Kiwis in T-shirts who were cycling/running/walking there. Great views of the city, airport, bay and the Cook Strait. Plenty of parking and excellent information boards for visitors.

The interpretative material is very informative and the view fantastic. You can walk up or get public transport most of the way. There is a big car park if you drive up.

You can get there on the bus from downtown, but make sure you keep an eye open for the bus returning to town from Mt Vic as we missed the bus and had to wait an hour for the next one.
Grab a free timetable from a dairy. The bus drivers are very helpful too.

The best way to get up to the top is really by car; the roads zigzag all the way, and maybe one of these days they'll put in a cable car! The views are 360 degrees around the city, the harbour, the airport, and the hills in the distance.All very beautiful
