Well worth visiting for locals and visitors alike. The view is worth every step if walking up, but if you are not up for the trek then there is easy car access with car parking. The turbine itself is pretty cool too.

Just to actually see the size of this up close is worthy of the drive. Easy to access and plenty of parking at the top. Great overall views of Wellington.

Yes it's a wind turbine, yes there are plenty around Wellington however it's still awesome being able to stand under it as it works. Those giant blades going round and round and round... The views are pretty awesome too.
