The must see for a visit to Wellington, even passing through. The panoramic view gives you the scale of the nation's capital.

“Great Drive Up to Mt. Victoria--Fantastic Views from the Summit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

After several false starts, we finally found the road leading up to Mt. Victoria [look for the brown signs, even though they are too small to read easily and even after reading them, you will not be sure where they are pointing to]. I love driving terribly steep, winding, narrow roads, and this road was one of the best of that ilk. Once you leave the main shore road and head up, it is about a 10 minute drive--if you do not miss a turn, but you will. Signage is a joke here. But trek on, the drive is great and once you get to the peak, you will be blown away--literally and visually. In one direction you see the Wellington Harbor and perhaps the InterIslander Ferry or a huge cruise ship, as well as portions of Wellington. Turn 50 degrees to the right, and you might see a plane on its landing pattern coming from the west side of the island to land on the east side at the Wellington International Airport. Turn another 60 degrees to your right, and there is Lyall Bay with the airport landing strip on the water's edge. There is no end to the amazing views from Mt. Victoria--including the mountain bikers who use the roads up to this summit for practice.
My wife and I had already spent 20 days driving the south island and seen mountains, glaciers, fjords, sounds, bays and more--but we were still awed by the views from Mt. Victoria.

This is a lovely spot, especially when there aren't a lot of tour busses visiting! Bring your camera - and also a windbreaker since it can be chilly and windy!
