Mount Victoria, or 'Mt Vic' to locals, is part of the Wellington Town Belt, providing an accesible forest for Wellingtonians.
Mount Victoria is an area surrounding the city set aside for public recreation.
The suburb of Mt Victoria is rich in cultural heritage, with numerous character houses and buildings, such as the St Gerard's Church and Monastery which overlooks the harbour.
The lookout at the top of the Mt Victoria hill provides a glorious panorama of Wellington. Walkways to the top are densely forested and begin close to the city centre.
