We went up for a look about first thing and it gave us a great orientation to the city. Even a bit overcast the view was far and wide. The trails around were well marked and instantly put you into nature in the capital.

Please take time to go to the Mount Vic. Wether walking up or Ubering it is worth it. The views are spectacular. Sunset or sunrise would be gorgeous. Afterwards walk down through Alexandra park to see the native plant and trees as well as some...More

Recommend the walk up to the lookout from oriental parade. Beautiful views along the way. Interesting facts to learn at the top and a nice lookout spot.

360 views of Wellington city from the CBD to the airport and even the South Island on a clear day. Do not miss it!

Amazing views and nice walk uphill. Not too hard - rather easy and short walk. Definitely worth going the longer way up. It's definitely a MustDo in Wellington :)

Mixture of mountain bike tracks and wa lking tracks. It is a great place to get amazing views across the city and the harbour. There is a Pa near the summit, and a road if you don't want to do lots of climbing.

The 360 degree harbor and city views are well worth the hike up from the city. Trails are well marked.

Beautiful views and short drive. VERY windy today and overcast so the view would be better on another day.

Hi, There is no public bus to the top of Mount Victoria. The closest bus still requires a 15 min walk to the top. You can drive to the lookout in your car, as there’s a car park for you to park in. Thanks 😊

They are not easy to find. And they are not all close to each other. The cheapest way to find them is to purchase a book or map. I booked a tour.

Yes parking available right at top. Unsure of traffic directions as we were driven up by someone from Wellington, but not too hard. Would be able to find my own way there now.
