  • You must go to the top of Mt Vic. Fabulous views over the Harbour Wellington City and the suburbs right up to the Hutt Valley and across to the Eastern hills the Airport and beaches right out to Cook ...  more »
  • On a fine day the views from Mojo Victoria are second to none with Wellington city opening up before your eyes. 
  • Drive up for a 5 minute walk to the amazing views or take the rather strenuous hike up to the top ... but I would think you would need to be pretty fit!
