  • If you're looking for a good vantage point of the city and also are vaguely interested in the history of windfarms - come on up. The first thing that will amaze you is how gigantic the things are.  more »
  • We visited The Wind Turbine on the weekend, first time since I was at school. Very windy up there but all part of the experience. Lovely information board to give you facts about how it was built. Fan...  more »

  • If you take the walking trail up to the windmill, it's a bit of a hike. The trail is very rocky and uneven (would not be fun if it's been raining as there will be mud) and fairly steep. However, you can drive up to the top, which may be a better option for some. The windmill area itself is obviously very windy - I wouldn't wear a skirt and cold as a result - even on a sunny day. There's not much to see at the actual windmill, but there is a small shelter off to the side which has a bit of the history of the place. The views are also pretty decent of the city behind and the beach and Cook Strait further south.
  • Amazing view and a great downhill mountain bike ride to Aro Valley
  • It's a great spot to enjoy a panoramic view over Wellington, but has been sans actual wind turbine for a few months now. Believe the new one will be ready in April 2016.
  • Interesting but not spectacular. Great views on a good day
  • Great view of the city and the wind turbines are cool :).
