Oriental Parade – Wellington



This was taken from the end of the Clyde Quay Wharf.
 The white building on the left is the Freyberg Pool and Fitness Centre (my current gym). I walk along this stretch of the waterfront many times a week. In the centre is the marina, boat sheds and the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club. Above the gym on the left is the iconic Saint Gerard’s Catholic Church and Monastery. To the right of this are the beautiful villas perched on the hillside. A close look might reveal a red car on a platform that sticks out from the hill (hint, it’s next to the orange house). Then, of course, is the lookout at the top of Mount Victoria. There are about 300 metres between the boat sheds and lookout, 200 metres vertically.
