  • Nice views, nice food at the café and the planetarium is a must do also. You need about two hours maximum.

  • As with most places in Wellington, on a fine, sunny day this is a beautiful spot. Wellington has the most amazing harbour that can really be appreciated at this lookout. The car park also has some...

  • Sights @ Mount Victoria Lookout. . After several days of hiking up and down hills, decided to hire a driver to bring me as close as possible to the summit. Still had to climb a few more metres to the top though. . Standing over 190 metres above sea level, the 360 degree view is fantastic. . The area also features the New Zealand National War Memorial, and a memorial to Richard Byrd, the American aviator who made the first flight over the South Pole.
  • Awesome lookout with amazing views over the harbour and the airport. You can see lots of landings and take offs from here which was super cool. Also we saw some beautiful bird species here too
