Information

In the middle of Auckland town is a view that rivals that of the Sky Tower, for free....! Just off Mt Eden Road you can cruise up to the top of Mt Eden a dormant volcano, its a very popular walking spot with the locals. At times you will bump into massive tourist buses, other times this place is your for the taking. Bring a wine up with you and watch the sunset. You can walk down into the crater, there is also some evidence of old kumera pits.

It was a very nice park in the middle of the city. We enjoyed to walk through the park and to the top of the sleeping volcano.

Full of tourists but a great way to kill a few hours in an expensive city.

Auckland's skyline from up there was great, it was hard going up there but totally worth it.

Great place to view all Auckland and surroundings, best enjoyed with sun. A bit touristy.

Beautiful walk which starts at the centre of the Mt Eden suburb and goes around the fascinating Mt Eden.

Beautiful sunset in the city, easy to access. Nice to get out of the city centre to see that.

We were too late to see the sunset so we had to run to the top of the hill. It was beautiful and completely different from Auckland! Beautiful, even with the clouds.

You can see the city from here but the walk there was not nice.
