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.

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.

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.

Two hours of walking up a steep, windy road but totally worth it as you get to see Wellington from all angles.
