"Oriental Parade - splendid Villas, fabulous Beach" Top 5 Page for this destination Waterfront Tip by Kakapo2
Waterfront, Wellington: 23 reviews and 46 photos
That is just a brilliant stretch of road squeezed between the beach of Oriental Bay and the steep hillside of Mt. Victoria. There are no real attractions along the road which is seamed by glorious Norfolk Pines, just splendid old villas dotted on the hills, with fantastic views and some with private cable cars, and there are some great restaurants along the main road. But that somehow is it.
On the wide footpath you meet joggers all day long, and the road seems to be in the hands of cyclists.
You have great views over the harbour and back to the skyline of the city.
It is quite a walk from the Waterfront and Te Papa but there are bus stops along the whole way. So if your feet are sore just take the bus back to the centre from any place along the parade.
Good restaurants on Oriental Parade:
The White House (expensive)
Tug Boat on the Bay (expensive)
Fisherman’s Table (very affordable)
