Wellington arrival via the Karori Sector

Returning from last Saturday's trip to D'Urville Island, I was able to get an arrival through the Karori Sector which is to the west of Wellington City.

Coming via the Karori Sector involves flying over the rugged coastline followed by the Makara wind farm, then the city itself before joining [in this case] right-base for runway 16. No better option on a stunning day like last Saturday!

Here's a very brief video, starting as I approach the Ohau VRP [Visual Reporting Point], over the Makara wind farm, then on to the city then to land. Aircraft was Wellington Aero Club's Cessna 172N, ZK-FLT. Take a look at how smooth the water it - hardly even a ripple!
