Neighborhood: Southern Suburbs

Identifiable to many Wellingtonians as the site of the ECNZ Wind Turbine and often referred to simply as the Wind Turbine, this dramatic peak is in fact the meeting point for walkers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts of all persuasions. Walking tracks beginning here will take you all the way down to the South Coast or back as far as Brooklyn and Karori. Brace yourself as Wellington is affectionately known as the Windy City, and they did not place the turbine here for nothing!
