Great view of Wellington and you get good exercise from walking. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the view from the top.

I love it up here, I used to walk up every weekend, it's hard to find the time now but I do enjoy the views very much. You can see almost all of Wellington

Views from the top. Good place to go for a walk if you don't want to spend money in Wellington, but the views for me weren't not so beautiful.

Great place to go for a spectacular view over Wellington, and the walk down is a fun activity. Need walking shoes though.

It’s a pretty quick walk from the city to get to the summit of Mount Vic. Although it’s steep in places depending on which route you take. The view at the summit is AWESOME. You will see a panoramic view of Wellington, from the airport...More

Visited this place during our hop on hop off trip. Unfortunately we didn’t had the weather on our side, but we had still nice (limited) views. The area is very clean and well maintained

Mount Victoria will give 360 degree views of the Wellington area. Watch the planes land and take off from the international airport or watch ships come and go. The drive up and back is very interesting with great scenes at every corner.

It can be a little bit of an adventure to get up to, but provides the best vistas of Wellington city. Perfect photo op!

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.
