Not my favorite place to hang out but a lovely little inner Harbour township. On a good day there's great views of the Heads of Wellington Harbour and the Harbour itself. Great walking location can get incredible windy particularly in the southerlies.

A great spot for a wander on a sunny Sunday morning. The views across to Wellington are fabulous, the path is easy, and the dogs are friendly.
