I've been up Mount Victoria numerous times and each time the view never ceases to amaze me. It's a bit of a walk up from the city side, but nice none the less as it is through native bush. I recommend going up both in...More

While staying in Wellington, we decided to drive to Mt. Victoria. It was a nice, sunny day and the views from Mt. Victoria were great. Visitors should not miss going to this wonderful site.

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.
