Victoria Peak Gardens At The Top Of Mount Austin Road

Victoria Peak Gardens at the pinnacle of Mount Austin Road in Hong Kong were the gardens of the former Governor of Hong Kong's summer house, Mountain Lodge. The peak gardens are a series of well-kept lawns that are connected via paved pathways and stone steps. Within the peak gardens, there are also wooden picnic tables and various victorian style pagodas that offer welcoming shelter from the sun on hot, sunny days.

To get to Victoria Peak Gardens you could catch the Peak Tram from Central to Victoria Peak and then walk down to the peak gardens which would take about 10 minutes. Similarly, you could catch the 15B bus to the peak and then walk down. A public taxi is another option or, if you are able-bodied and like walking or hiking then you could hike up Mount Austin Road, which is an increasingly popular way to get to the peak gardens as it means you could also enjoy Mount Austin Playground and the many panoramic views en-route. To hike to Victoria Peak Gardens you would start your walk from the Tram Terminus at the bottom of Mount Austin Road.
