Durie Hill Tower & Elevator

Sixty-six metres high, the Durie Hill Elevator was built in 1919 and is NZ’s only public underground elevator and one of only two in the world. A pedestrian tunnel leads to the elevator and at the top you can catch panoramic views of the Tasman Sea, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Taranaki. Right next to the elevator tower is the War Memorial Tower, which, when climbed, will offer an even more impressive scene for your selfie.
