Scenic spot in Wellington

Mount Victoria Lookout

Experience sweeping views of Wellington from Mount Victoria Lookout, a top spot at 196m for city and harbor sights.

Perched above Wellington, the Mount Victoria Lookout rises to 196 meters (643 feet), offering panoramic views. Visitors here see the city’s landscape, the harbor, and the green hills.

The journey to the summit can be as rewarding as the destination. You can drive, cycle, or walk through green belts, noting historical markers and a variety of plant life.

At the top, the wind is brisk; a reminder of nature's presence. The platform provides space for visitors to look over Wellington, Te Whanganui-a-Tara, and on a clear day, the Kaikoura Ranges. Photographers and observers stay here, especially during dawn or dusk as the city lights begin to shine.

The Lookout is also a place of local culture, often used for picnics and getting together. It has been a filming location for movies that feature Wellington.

Mount Victoria Lookout offers views of both city and sea. It's an important stop for anyone wanting to understand the urban and natural charm of New Zealand's capital.
