Really enjoyed my time in Wellington, and this was a nice hike on a sunny day. This was the best view of Wellington, admittedly though, Wellington doesn't possess the most spectacular skyline. Fun hike but not the most rewarding finish.

Enjoyed walking up to the Mt Vic lookout while staying in Wellington from Majoribanks Street. The tracks are very natural. Well signed posted and not too steep. The views from the top were amazing a full 360 view of wellington. Stunning

Drove up to the lookout... stunning & picturesque 360 degree views which are quite rare in most cities around the world. A very unique spot where we saw a couple of planes taking off from Wellington airport ... Basin reserve & the entire coastline around Wellington

Tske the cable car to the top to get a good viewpoint of the city. There's An Orientation msp here and a cable car museum. Walk down through the botanical gardens.

360 degree views to the city and its harbour, amazing lookout point. We drive up, but be aware of the tight narrow roads to get up there, and yes buses use it too, some backing maybe involved ;) But, this is a must see attraction if you want to enjoy the views of Wellington. This would be very much suited... More

As a stop on a shore-excursion tour, this beautiful, lush paradise revealed itself as a marvelous bike/hike and dog-friendly park at an elevation that displayed surrounding countryside and Wellington at a great advantage. Lots of locals were in full array for their individual sports and obviously enjoying themselves completely. We enjoyed our half-hour visit.

Wow how lucky are we to have this place so close to town. The mountain bike tracks are well maintained. If you are looking for a free day out this can not be missed

Had a fantastic time hiking up to Mt Victoria Lookout. Awesome views. Safe, clean and tidy areas. We went up at 5pm on Tuesday night hardly any people around which was great.

Always take our visitors up there at night for a beautiful panoramic view of Wellington. Enables them to understand the layout and geography of the city. Nice by day too. Incredible when there's no wind and the drive up a tourist attraction on its own.

Took the kids up and loved the view. Quite windy but the kids enjoyed climbing up the stairs / hill to get to the top. Quite busy but there was a cruise ship in. Parking at the top and if all taken, people don't take very long and you'll get a park.
