Went up to see this, think the international student from Japan liked the view from up the hill more than learning about the turbine. Awkward road up there and footpath not very nice.

But a great view to be hard and to see a turbine up close without a long walk interesting facts to read on the board too

Great place to visit to have a look at the stunning scenery. Situated high up above Wellington the views are spectacular.

A great view and an interesting thing to go check out. There seem to be a number of walking trails - we had my young boy with us so took an easier walk and he thought it was great.

The turbine is a turbine so I wouldn't go to just see the turbine. However, it is built on a beautiful spot overlooking the entire city of Wellington. Getting there requires a car, but the trip is a pleasant drive along the coast.

If in Wellington - visiting these things is a must.... if you're not into the engineering feat fo teh turbines, then the views will definitely blow you away. We have a beautiful backyard and this is one place you can appreciate it.

I took a trip up to the turbine with a Family group including a six year old (who was suitably impressed.) We have often seen this from a Relatives home across the valley,but it is hard to imagine the size until you are standing right...More

One of the best and highest points to get great all round views out over Wellington. This turbine stands out on the horizon and is quite well sign posted, be warned though the roads are very tight with sharp angle turns and parked cars, not...More

Whether you walk or drive up the hill the views are sensational. There is not much up at the top save for a small display about how they got the turbine up the hill, etc. The view is second to none - you can see...More
