Mt Victoria is a suburb and mountain just north of Wellington city. Originally dairy pastures, the land on the slopes of the mountain became popular for the more prominent residents of Wellington. And who could blame them? The views from the mountain of Wellington city and harbour are simply stunning, especially on a clear day as I enjoyed.
A physical challenge is to hike up the mountain, which takes about 45 minutes. Or you can drive up to take in the views. Either way a visit to Mt Victoria is a must do during a trip to Wellington.
