If you are visiting Wellington, then you must take a cab ride up to the summit of Mount Victoria (well you have to walk the last bit). It is simply breathtaking and the views of Wellington and surrounding areas plus the South Island in the...More

Nice look out. We however went on a rainy day so did not get much of a view. Should be visited on a clear day. The views will be awesome.

Drove up to the viewpoints. The weather was clear and sunny! Enjoyed the views immensely. A great place to see the geography of the Wellington region! No hassles with parking and not crowded on a Thursday evening.

2 LOTR Fans very happy. After disappointing location hunting in the South Island this place is so easy to access from the city. We used many online blogs to discover the walkway into the woods where the famous scene was shot. Some handy vandal has...More

Personally, I would recommend taking the time to walk up Mount Victoria to get to the lookout, but even if you're short on time you should definitely add this to your trip. The views of Wellington are fantastic, especially on a sunny summer day.

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.
