  • A great view from the Wind Turbine Farm. A 360 degree view of the Wellington area. Let alone the fascinating information on Wind Turbines. You might think this isn't very exciting but it is very inter...  more »

  • Yup, it's a wind turbine! No seriously it's an interesting place to see if you like a bit of engineering. If that doesn't float your boat there's always the walking tracks and the view is stunning. Yo...  more »

  • One of the best views of the city. If you can be bothered to week up the hill for another 30 minutes, the view over both the city and the South coast from the radar dome on Hawkins hill is fantastic. A huge network of mountain biking and walking trails run past the wind turbine, providing an easy route down into Aro Valley, a slightly more strenuous path across to Wrights hill in Karori, or a stunning route out to the south coast at Red rocks.
  • Best views in Wellington. Drive right up ample parking and if you're into mountain biking, running or walking there's tracks leading All around it.
  • Great views over Wellington. Good exercise to walk or ride upto the windmill
  • Love the walk or bike up here for such amazing views!
  • 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.
