  • Mt Victoria lookout is a good place to see what Wellington is all about. I would recommend to take the hike from the city up because the forest there is awesome. You can go up with your car tough. 
  • The vantage point is located above the town and can way are easily reached by car, on foot approx. 25 minutes. It offers beautiful views of Wellington and also the airport. To see a beautiful and free way on the city.
