The best way to get your bearings of the city is by checking out the picture-perfect views from the top of Mount Victoria, or Mt Vic, as the locals call it.

Rising 196m above the city, the Mount Victoria Lookout has stunning panoramic views of Wellington city, harbour, and hills. You can drive to the top of Mt Vic or walk there via one of the many trails in the Town Belt. Mt Vic is also one of the best spots in the city for taking in a sunrise or sunset.
