Mt Vic has a special place in my heart and it’s by far one of my favourite spots in Wellington.
There are a multitude of paths leading from the city, beach and shops up to the lookout, taking you through tall trees and low bush, past sites used for Lord of the Rings filming, and on paths for people, pets and bikes. I’m a big fan of the Southern Walkway which takes you from Newtown to Oriental Bay (or vice versa).
The view from the top is a full 360 degrees of Wellington! It’s perfect for plane or ferry watching and probably the best location for fireworks displays.
Wellington is considered the windiest major city in the world, and you can really experience it from the Mt Vic lookout on a blustery day. On a calm day? Can’t beat it.
