“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I have been walking up Mount Kaukau since I was really little and it never ceases to amaze me. Beautiful views, especially at dusk, and it's especially good to take up a picnic and eat it nestled by one of the rabbit holes.

Reviewed July 10, 2013

I can see Mount Kaukau and have walked up it many times. The view from the top never ceases to make me smile. Such a great place to have on your doorstep.

to stretch your legs
some steep places but really great views if you reach the top with glimpses through the trees as you ascend
a small quait cafe at the bottom with art work to buy if you fancy a coffee

“Hill Climb and Vie”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

A bit more than an afternoon stroll but well worth the effort for the wonderful view. Nice park at the base of the hill leading up the mount by well formed pathway. Beautiful trees and birds to see on the way.

“Beautiful walk and stunning views”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I have always lived by Mount Kaukau but recently have moved away from Wellington but I still make sure I go up Mt Kaukau every time I'm home. The walk is probably best described as medium in terms of difficulty and fitness required but when you get to the top the views are DEFINITELY worth it!!!
