We went up Mount Victoria and a cloudy day and still the views were spectacular. There are some very good information panels at the top.

This is the place to go to get views of Wellington! You can either drive or hike up this mountain. Can see planes land at the airport from the mountain as well

The day visited this place was extremely windy. We couldn't stand still without holding on to the rails. But this place gives a great view of Wellington. Worth visiting.

Hi, There is no public bus to the top of Mount Victoria. The closest bus still requires a 15 min walk to the top. You can drive to the lookout in your car, as there’s a car park for you to park in. Thanks 😊
