Like with Auckland’s Mount Eden, Mount Victoria stands nearly to the city centre of Wellington. I had planned to walk up to the lookout from the harbour but I was fortunate enough to be offered a lift with a couple of family friends. From this angle the capital looks vast. This is in part due to having Lambton Harbour and Oriental Bay in the foreground. It was a fantastic view point and hopefully next time I am in the capital I might get back up there at night.
