tall. Mount Victoria gives a lovely bird's eye view of Wellington during the day and is easily accessible by foot or vehicle. Some may also recognize Mount Victoria from Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Mount was used twice in the films. Mount Victoria also provides spectacular views of the sunset and of Wellington at night.

Mount Victoria offers stunning 360 degree views over Wellington (and lets you appreciate just how much of a valley the city is!). It's about an hour walk from the road, or you can drive up it and just walk a couple of minutes to the summit. If you're a LOTR fan - this is where they filmed the "get off the road!" scene. :)

A great hiking spot offering beautiful 360 degree views of the city and bay. They also filmed some scenes from Lord of the Rings here, which the nerd in me loves.
