Mt Victoria Lookout

Best views of the capital

View of Wellington from Mt Victoria (10)

The best views of Wellington city are from atop Mt Victoria (196m), to the southeast of the city. There are sweeping 360-degree views, although if the weather is bleak, you might want to save this for another day.

Drive up, take Bus 20 most of the way and walk the rest, or if you’re after some exercise, walk up (there are lots of options; check out the Walkway map).
