Mount Victoria, locally abbreviated to Mt Vic, is a prominent hill to the east of the centre of Wellington, linked to Mount Albert by a ridge. The suburb of Mount Victoria is a mixture of residential and commercial activity on the western flank of the ridge above the southern end of the Wellington CBD. Mt Vic boasts beautiful views of the city and the suburb is well populated by artisanal cafes and eateries that add to the local feel of the walk. This was also the location where numerous scenes of The Lord of the Rings was shot.

Address: Lookout Road, Wellington
