Start from Courtney Place and within an hour you'll see an amazing panoramic view of Wellington. Watch the ferries coming in and out of the harbour. There are a couple of viewing points before you reach the true top. All viewing points are worth the stop as they all show Wellington from different angles.

Worth it! Walked from the Evans Bay Marina (free) carpark a few blocks to the start of the Mt. then up through the forestpark (passed the Frodo-site, which is a bit disappointing nowadays, I imagine it being more movie-worthy years ago) to the topview which was definitely worth it. View over the whole city and harbours. You'll pass a few more nice viewingpoint coming from this direction. Walked it in about two hours return. Some steep parts but very doable. There are several ways up/down through the park. Nice park to get away from the city. An exercise-treat when visiting this city.
Short walk with an amazing view over Wellington. Would definitely recommend this track!
You can walk from Evans Bay to the city centre passing Mt Victoria. A very steep climb, but well worth the effort! The view from the lookout is astonishing and the walk down is nice viewing the beautiful houses on the hill. Took us roughly two hours.
Climb to the top of Mt Victoria for great views over the city of Wellington and the airport.
Nice walk and great views!
Great view of the city from the top. Walked up here most days during my stay in Wellington.
It has a great lookout above the surrounding water area and Wellington. Nice to sit in the grass and have some lunch. Only takes about 15 minutes to walk up.
Offers a nice view of Wellington, the airport and the harbour and is very accessible from the centre of the city.
Good walk, great view of Wellington, good spot to watch the sunset.
Two hours of walking up a steep, windy road but totally worth it as you get to see Wellington from all angles.
