Wrights Fortress open day
Looking for a different type of outing these holidays?
Head along to the Wrights Hill Fortress open day on Wednesday 28th December, between 10am and 4pm.
Visitors will be able to show themselves through the Fortress with a free map and history pamphlet. The walk usually takes one hour. The Fortress was built in World War Two to protect Wellington and its environs from enemy attack or invasion from the Pacific.
Admission is $20 for a family of two adults and three children under 15, or $8 for an adult and $5 for a child. Cash only please. Access is along Karori Road, left into Campbell Street and right into Wrights Hill Road.
There is plenty of car parking at the top of Wrights Hill Road.
Bring a torch for some fun but no jandals please!
