Definitely worth a trip up to this hill. Great views of the port and up the bay. It is a pity it was a bit wet when we went up.

360 degree view of the bay, city and port. There is a narrow winding road up but the effort is worthwhile. I was most taken with the workings of the container forklift trucks and those shifting logs about on the wharves below. They look like dinky toys.

Amazing views well worth going to see especially on a sunny day I didn't go right to the edge as I don't like heights but there was another area were I was quite happy to stand

If you are feeling energetic you can walk up to the Lookout
Otherwise there is a windy road to the top: go slowly
Once at the top take in the views 'out' to the Pacific or 'in' to the Ranges
On our clear summer or winter days you can see for miles

Excellent view of the port area and the Hawkes Bay coastline which put Napier into context for us as first time visitors. Also saw a cruise ship which had docked in the harbour. Well worth the drive up to the lookout area.
