Newbies walk - up to Mount Vic lookout

  • Feb 14, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 the Southern Cross near Cuba Street for a drink and free food platters.

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!

Difficulty: 2.5/5

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).

We'll end up at the Southern Cross tonight where you will meet further AW members, and where we can enjoy a quick drink, and free food platters. Bring a good appetite and sense of humor.

    Hi everyone, because of the uncertainty with the weather today, a decision has been taken to move this to the 10th Feb - lets hope the weather will be kinder to us then. If you can't make this new date, please change your RSVP.
    Further opps to attend a newbies walk will be advertised soon.
    Have a good day - stay dry!!

    Hi everybody, the weather forecast for today is not promising at all. Will be making a call on whether the walk goes ahead around lunchtime. If cancelled, a new date will be set that I hope will enable those of you signed up for this to attend. Any questions, just post a comment here, or txt me on 0273193754. Cheers, Eugene
