So today I thought I would climb a small mountain-Mount Victoria.
It was a beautiful, blue skied Wellington afternoon and I ventured out to walk up to the Mount Victoria lookout.
The track up to the lookout was the location for many scenes in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies!!
It was a gradual incline but nothing too hard and the views at the top made for the walk up. At 196m above sea level you could see a full 360 degree view of the Wellington region. I even got to watch a few planes take off!
So to anyone contemplating having a small walk up to Mt Vic, I assure you it’s worth the little hike (very little hike!).
