Great view over Wellington and the harbour. Easy access with car even though the road are pretty small.

“Awesome Views”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Definitely not to be missed! Can literally see the entire city from Mt. Victoria and the trip up to the top is quite an adventure if you're a runner. A word of warning...don't bring your umbrellas! The wind can get quite nasty.

“Panoramic views”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Interesting journey to the top along winding streets so not for the fainthearted driver when meeting a tourist bus on a tight corner. Good all round views make it a must to see where else you might like to visit.

“A must see view point in Wellington”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

If your visiting Wellington 'Mount Victoria Lookout' is not to be missed, fro the excellant viewpoint above a large carpark there is an almost 360 degree view of the whole city and many of the surrounding hills, there is all the usuall visual aids up there, with plaques etc pointing to various points of interest. stunning at night with the city ablaze with lights, especialy at Christmas, and on any warm balmy evening (yes we do get them in Wgtn!) you need a car or taxi/tour to get there, takes about 10 mins climbing up from Courtney Place or Oriental Terrace.

“Great view”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The place to visit if you want great views of wellington. It has nearly 360 degree views and the best place on a clear day for photo opportunities.
Be careful driving up as the road is terribly narrow with cars parked on the sides, sometimes making it one way traffic.
