Short drive up narrow windy roads but very rewarding view at top. There are lots of steps to get up to the proper viewing area but still good views from carpark. Also worth doing after dark for twinkly lights of Wellington. Seems to be a popular cycle route if your feeling energetic.

I really enjoyed hiking from Wellington up Mt. Victoria. During the hike you see great views of Wellington. When you reach the lookout, you can see the entire bay. It's a must see

Have been up Mt Vic twice during International Arts Festival - once there was a perfomrnace of street theatre woith some very weird animals and scarey dog-hyena creatures and the next time an awesome band playing off a scaffold ... Great part of this fun diverse city

The view at anytime would be fantastic but at night it is magical. Would suggest you take a jacket as it was windy. If you can go at night the lights, planes etc are so worth the effort.
