New members -- this one is for you! If you've joined in the past two months, you can RSVP to this easy-paced evening stroll up Mount Vic and meet some other new faces to Adventure Wellington.
The Plan: We start in front of the Embassy Theatre on Kent Terrace, and walk up Majori Banks Street until we reach the park...then up the hill to the Mount Victoria Lookout for some terrific 360 degree views.
Then we walk down again, following the last part of the Southern Walkway, with great views of the city and Oriental Bay, ending at Babylon on Oriental Parade for a drink.
Although the tracks are steep, we would do it on an easy pace with lots of stops to admire the views. The walk will take about two hours.
After the walk, those who are interested can come for a customary AW after-event drink!
Distance: 6.5 km
Time: 2 hours (including 15 minutes at the summit)
What to bring: sturdy shoes, a camera, 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).
