Accessible walkways

Walks in Wellington reserves that are suitable for wheelchairs.

People at Mount Victoria lookout.

Central City

Byrd memorial, Mount Victoria
Byrd Memorial and the interpretive panels on Mount Victoria can be reached from the summit car park.

Northern suburbs

Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinakori Hill), Northland
Also known as Tinakori Hill, the path to the lookout off the Northland end of Orangi Kaupapa Road, is a wheelchair assisted walk. The lookout has good views of the city, a picnic area, and interpretive panels explaining the hill's history. The loop walk has a steeper gradient so we don't recommend this track for wheelchairs.

Alex Moore Park, Johnsonville
Alex Moore Park has a flat, wide perimeter track around the sportsfield.

Southern suburbs

Central Park, Brooklyn
From the main entrance of Central Park, a gravel track follows Moturoa Stream to a series of wooden bridges. Return to the main entrance at the deck area, past the bridges, as the path rises steeply after this point. This is a wheelchair assisted walk and the track does get narrow in some places.

Brooklyn wind turbine
The lookout offers outstanding views of the city and the hills across the harbour.

Tawatawa Reserve, Owhiro Bay
Tawatawa Reserve has a flat circular walkway made of clay and gravel. The ridgeline has a steeper gradient so we don't recommend this track for wheelchairs.

Western suburbs

Karori Park
Karori Park has a flat asphalt path around the perimeter.

Wrights Hill, Karori
Wrights Hill can be reached by wheelchair up a zig-zag path from the car park. This reserve provides impressive views of the city and is well-known for its extensive World War II fortifications.

Eastern suburbs

Miramar Peninsula
Juvenile is a family friendly track, suitable for bikes, walkers, wheelchairs and buggies.

Start on Main Road, Miramar. Just past the water tower, you'll descend through native bush on a nice wide trail. Take in views over Miramar on a loop track with a climb back up to the top of the ridge.
