Good view to see the Napier coastline. Interesting info board and trig map. Bit of a winding road up but worth the effort.

It was a hazy day so the distant vistas were limited, but the view of the port was clear and interesting. Toilets available and seating options. No food outlets.

My husband cycled, the rest of the family opted to take the car. It’s a steep ride. The drive up was lovely. Gorgeous houses and neighbourhood. Always nice to get a birds eye view of where you are staying.
It costs nothing but some time. Take the walk or drive. It’s easy and lovely.

Great spot to see the sights. This was thr first place we went when we arrived in Napier and it was good to orientate ourselves.

Fun to look down on the port and see it in action. Probably not many in the world that you can see so close up.

You get to see some interesting streets and houses on the way. Commanding view from the top. Good exercise if you walk.

We rode up on EBikes, glad the streets were not busy. Walking or driving up a better option. Great views overlooking the port & north.

Great view of the working port etc. The road is windy and narrow so needs to be driven carefully. Fabulous view. The lookout area is hilly but ok for wheelchair users if you have some support for pushing. There are no designated mobility parks there.

Went up to Bluff Hill for a sunset watch. The Port was bustling even at 8pm. Great to watch the containers being loaded from above and the tug boats manage departures. Stunning vista.
