“Wonderful park and great view from the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

The climb can be steep at times, depending on which track you choose, but the view from the top over Wellington and (when the weather is good) even of the South Island is amazing. But not only the top is worth seeing: there are several walking options around the park, as well as several mountain bike tracks, and if you are a Lord of the Rings fan, you can check out the sites where some of the scenes were shot for The Fellowship of the Ring.

“Good walk up and excellent views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

With its 190 odd meters Mt Victoria provides sweeping views over Wellington, and is good exercise should you walk up. There are a couple of nice trails up there and back down.

“360 VIEWS - AND GREAT SUNSETS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

A great place to watch the sun going down at the end of a perfect day in Wellington. My satnav made easy work of finding it: not sure that it would be as easy without. Hawker Street is a good place to set out from if you have a car: just keep going up - and follow the signs.

“Great uphill walk and fantastic view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

I always try and slog my way up Mt Vic when I am in Wellington - the hard uphill trek is rewarded with a scenic view and then its an easy trip down.
