  • Whenever I have overseas visitors I take them to the normal tourist spots (the free ones like Mt Victoria, Wainuiomata Hill, etc) including the Wind Turbine. Highly educational and informative. 
  • The best part of the old wind turbine were the interpretive panels which showed you how much electricity wa being produced (and how many homes this could supply). For some reason these haven't been re...  more »
  • We drove up here for the view. I didn't have much interest in the actual wind turbine. However, if you want to take great pictures I recommend driving up here for great 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.
  • 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 :).
