It is just outside town and well worth a drive to the top for a good view. The road round to the beach was disappointing, unless you are looking to walk all the way up.

We walked up from the city. In places it was a little challenging though manageable for people of average fitness. There are lots of little areas to explore. You are able to access the area by road also

It is only a 5minute drive from the citu centre. The lookout has just about 365degree views. You can see most of the city and the ocean looks beautiful from here.

Gives a great view of the city on one side and the beaches on the next side and then at the top look over Young Nicks Head and down to Mahia. You can see that Poverty Bay is a bay from up here....
