Mt Victoria / Matairangi Redevelopment

Improving visitor information

The summit of Mt Victoria with its breathtaking view over Wellington city and beyond is one of Wellington’s most popular visitor destinations. Significant cultural and historical meaning is associated with the site, for both Maori and European alike.

Thanks to new on-site interpretation, visitors can discover that they are standing on the great fish eye when they reach the summit lookout. The interpretation panels are part of a comprehensive redevelopment for the site aimed at enhancing visitor experience.

Boffa Miskell was commissioned by the Wellington City Council to redevelop the site and improve visitor information. The works on the summit and toilet facilities on Alexandra Rd, represent the first stage of development in recognising the potential of the entire eastern ridgeline.
