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.

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

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.

We were climbing Mt Eden in early October, it was bad weather and a long, hard way, the walkways were in bad condition, but in the end it was worth it. Great view over the whole city!
