We went with a few people for a Sunday walk through the Brooklin wind turbine. At the top, there is information to tell you about this place and when it was updated. The walkway is really good and the view from the top is amazing!

Just to actually see the size of this up close is worthy of the drive. Easy to access and plenty of parking at the top. Great overall views of Wellington.

The view from the top of the hill is gorgeous! You can see the strait to the South Island and down to Wellington city. I've also been told that the hike/walk up is great though I was in a car. The track follows the perimeter...More
