FIND THESE STEPS – At 38 Rangiora Avenue and at the top at 102 Amritsar Street, in Khandallah.
Hidden away, and a little out of the way, these steps hold the distinction for having the most steps – 473, and a grand view of the Wellington Harbour along the way. A series of zigzags at first, then several levels of straight-ahead steps.
Khandallah features plenty of streets named for cities in India, and Armistar is a city in Punjab, near Pakistan.
About half way, two mail boxes. Imagine the stamina of the postie assigned to these deliveries.
Incredibly, Wellington City Council looks after these steps, and the repairs are impressive.
