Find these steps – Just before Northland Village, at 51 Northland Road.
This very impressive zigzag is actually a pathway, but there are steps- yes, although they are abandoned, there are steps. Truly.
So including this one is a bit dodgy, but the view is spectacular.
Northland is named for Viscount Northland, writes Ms Irvine-Smith, and he was killed in World War I. His father, Earl of Ranfurly, was New Zealand’s Governor from 1897 to 1904.
From the top, the view of the Northland Tunnel, and a stunning day in Wellington.
