Southern walkway – Wellington

  • 1 minute

Mt Victoria Lookout @Stuff


  • City walk through suburbs, parks to the iconic viewing platforms on Mt Victoria
  • Personality plus walk with Wellington’s unique cool personality on display

Imagine a city trail that passes great cafes, strolls past street art murals and sweeps up offering panoramic views of the capital city, Wellington. The walk is a local favourite due to the number of exits and entrances the walk has creating numerous short walks. Walk the entire trail and get into the zone of Wellington outdoors where hills, gullies, parks and suburbs form the city’s personality.

The walk starts in Wellington’s CBD on Oriental Parade and following the Town Belt through some of the city’s favourite parks and winds its way to Island Bay. There’s view and sights all along the way: take in the panoramic views of the city from the top of Mt Victoria, observe film locations from The Lord of the Rings, traverse suburbs on urban bush trails to arrive at the wild grandeur of the South Coast.
