This is without a doubt the best place to view Wellington, you can see the south island, harbour and the airport. It was a little difficult to finf, the road signs a bit confusing but well worth the time spent looking.

When my husband and I first arrived in Wellington for an 8-month stay in the country, we were told that Mount Vic was the place to go for great views of the surroundings. We chose not to have a car, so we hiked over (and up!) to the summit. The trails are beautiful, and we had fun imagining the spots where various scenes were shot for Lord of the Rings. In places, the climb was pretty strenuous, especially for middle-aged folks from pancake-flat Florida. But we enjoyed it and were rewarded by the view, even though it was not a clear day.

This is a famous location in Wellington, well-known for the views, and understandably so. We enjoyed the exercise and the views.

Brilliant panoramic views of the Wellington CBD, the basin and the harbour stretching out to the island heads. Breath taking views, but be sure to take a coat with you, because standing atop the windy lookout in the winter will definitely sap every last bit of warmth out of your body.

Very easy to access to the summit as you can drive all the way top and find parking there. The views of the city are good, though Wellington is honestly not the most impressive looking city. A good place to go to if you're staying in Wellington as you get to have an obstructed view in most directions.
