Newbies Sunset walk - up to Mount Vic lookout

  • Mar 27, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

New members  -- this one is for you! If you've joined recently, or haven't done this event yet, come and join me on one of the last newbie weekday evening walks until Spring 2013 on this fairly brisk-paced early evening walk up Mount Vic and meet some other new faces to Adventure Wellington. Preference will be given to those that have not been on this walk before.

The Plan: We start in front of the Embassy Theatre on Kent Terrace, and walk along Oriental Bay, then up the last part of the Southern Walkway, with great views of the city.

Finally after we make it to the Mount Victoria Lookout we'll have some terrific 360 degree views.

Although the tracks are steep, and that this walk will be done at a fairly brisk pace, there will be lots of stops to admire the views. The walk will take about two hours.

After the walk, for those who are interested we will stop off at Beach Babylon for a light refreshment!

Difficulty: 2.5/5

Distance: 7 km

Time: 1 1/2 hours (including 15 minutes at the summit)

What to bring: sturdy shoes, a camera, a good sense of humor, fun attitude, and maybe a walking stick for traversing the steep hills.

How to get there: Frequently served by buses (catch a bus going to Courtenay Place) and we will end close to where we started (at the waterfront at Oriental Parade).

Important information: A 'no show' rule applies to all AW events, inclusive of this one.  Therefore, if you cancel your RSVP after 7pm on the evening before the walk, or do not turn up for the event, you will receive notification of your non-attendance.  Please be aware of this. Sorry.
