Victoria Domain occupies a ridge running north-east from Picton, reaching an altitude of 184m. The land was originally declared reserve in 1857. ItĀ provides excellent views over Picton harbour from the top of the ridge, in addition to a number of walking tracks and beach access. The original mature native forest has been mostly destroyed by human intervention, however, allowed to recover, regenerating native bush now covers most of the reserve. Fivefinger, akeake, manuka and kanuka are all present in addition ot other species.This regenerating bush provides a habitat for a numberĀ of native bird species including weka, bellbird, fantail among others.

It is possible to walk to Victoria Domain from the Picton foreshore via the coathanger bridge, or drive to the summit with access via Sussex Street.
