  • Only open for four days of the year, the fortress is a landmark that is well worth the $8 entry fee. Fire a rifle, see the communication room, read all about the brave soldiers and see replica shells and gun. Huge generator room and much more. Great visit.
  • Interesting historic tunnels in a park with wonderful views and walking areas
  • I walk this hill a lot. Great views and you can keep going along the fence line to Brooklyn windmill.
  • Amazing to walk through Wellington history. The restoration progress is really great to see.
  • The deep-fried cave weta was slightly undercooked; it still twitched on the plate. Still, it was delicious, and good value at the price.
