The Mount Victoria lookout is well worth the visit with outstanding views of Wellington. We caught an Uber up and walked back down which was a really pleasant way to spend the morning.

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.
