Newbies walk - up to Mount Vic lookout

  • 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 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.

Then we walk down again to Pirie Street and ending at the Southern Cross for a drink and free platters of food :-)

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 to two and a half hours.

After the walk, those who are interested can come for a customary AW after-event drink, and free platters of food, thanks to one of our great sponsors, The Southern Cross bar!

Difficulty: 2.5/5

Distance: 7 km

Time: 2.5 hours (including 15 minutes at the summit)

What to bring: sturdy shoes, a camera, a good sense of humor, fun, 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).

    Hi everybody, weather forecast looks good for tomorrow, so, unless you hear from me by 4pm tomorrow, the walk is a definite goer. Let's meet inside the Embassy on the ground floor, and it would be great if you could all be there for a 6pm start. I'll be there from 5.30pm. If you r running late, or have any other questions, please contact me on [masked], via txt or call.
    Have a great day everybody, cheers, Eugene :-)
