Newbies Sunset walk - up to Mount Vic lookout

  • Nov 22, 2012 · 7:15 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, you can RSVP to this fairly brisk-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, 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, 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. Also, as we will be going to the Southern Cross afterwards for drinks and free food platters, please bring some form of accepted ID, ie, New Zealand drivers license, or for overseas visitors, something like your passport.

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.

    Hi everybody, looks like a great day for the walk this evening. Would be great if you can all be at the Embassy by 7.10pm at the latest so we can make a prompt start. And just as a reminder, we will go to the Southern Cross bar after the walk for a free Cross platter and a refreshment or two afterwards. Hope you can make this. If you are running late this evening, or have any other questions, please contact me on 027 3193754.
    Look forward to meeting you all this evening.
    Cheers, Eugene
