Mount Victoria Lookout - Review

Situated at 196 metres above the city of Wellington, the Mount Victoria Lookout is a Wellington must-do. Located near the central business district, one can drive up to the lookout point or one can trek up Mount Victoria. The lookout gives stunning panoramic views of Wellington city and harbour. Near the viewing platform is a memorial of Richard Byrd, the American aviator. This place is also one of the best spots in the city for witnessing a marvellous sunrise or sunset. Recently, Mount Victoria acted as a filming location for the first movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy!
