I was lucky in that my cousins drove me here-well as close as one can get to the top. The views all round are wonderful.

Steep but relatively short walk up the hill. The view rewards the effort! I totally recommend the walk.

Stretched our legs and walked around taking in the panoramic views of Wellington - we’ll worth the journey up !

Stunningly set city with steep hills coming down to the harbour. This lookout is very worthwhile for a great overview

You can reach Mount Victoria by cutting vertically through the streets - it's a steep & sweaty half hour walk. At the top you are rewarded with great views of Wellington in all directions.
