This Meetup is cancelled

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 recently, or haven't done this event yet, you can RSVP to this easy-paced late afternoon stroll 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, 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 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).

    Hi everybody, just sent a note to say this event has been cancelled - no end in sight to the weather we are experiencing today - will reschedule this for next Sunday and I'll rebook you on this one. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Kind regards, Eugene

    Hi everybody, I would still like to do the walk if possible - did it yesterday, only got a bit wet towards the end, today looks a bit tougher, but i will make a decision by 1pm - guess this will be more of an adventure with rain and wind around :) hope u r still all keen, keep your eyes posted to this comments box

    Hi Derek, the map just above this comments box is a good idea of where we need to meet - it's just at the end of Courtney Place - very easy to find - let's just hope we get some decent weather this weekend!

    Hi Olly, Hi Nick, I've put you both back on the wait list - sorry guys, am only going to do this for 12 people on Sunday and because of the proliferation of new members, and going to give first preference to those that haven't been on the walk.
