“Mount Kaukau is the most visible high point in the Wellington landscape, and easily recognisable as it is the site of Wellington's main television transmitter tower.”
Several well-formed tracks lead to the summit lookout, where there are panoramic views of the city and harbour, Hutt Valley, the Tararua Range, Porirua and the South Island.
Tracks to Mount Kaukau begin at Woodmancote Road and Simla Crescent in Khandallah, Sirsi Terrace in Broadmeadows, and Truscott Avenue in Johnsonville.
The summit is part of the Northern Walkway. The walk up to the peak takes about an hour and is steep in places, but the tracks are well-formed and there are seats on which to rest on the way.
