  • Personally this was not worth the uphill walk although the views are good but they are better elsewhere. 
  • High above the city, up a breathtaking drive. To the top of the world, An awesome must do, lots of parking, trails for walkers and bikers and a suprb upclose look at a massive wind turbine. JUST DO IT...  more »
  • Since the road is noticeable wind-power turbines, I think are a good way to generate electric energy mainly in places where a lot of wind, but stay beautiful in the landscape looking like huge metal trees

  • 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 :).
