“magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

this is only open 3x a year (the fortress) but it is magnificent!
Wright hill is a lovely place for a walk or picnic and commands super views but the underground fort with gun batteries is the bees knees.

“Gun emplacement / tunnels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2010

had the good fortune of visiting and locating the remains of the turret's, a bit of NZ defense history apparently. can drive or take a short stroll to locate. PLUS there is also a guided tour of the tunnels connecting each cannon location (think it was three by memory). The tour is very limited.. as maybe only a handful of times a year! best check with the wellington information center for more precise details. Nice
