Perfect day and great view point to see Auckland's two volcano cones, harbors, military installations and pretty Devenport. Built on the remnants of Auckland's third volcano cone it is also home to a covered reservoir marked by its "magic mushroom" vents. Really a must see.

Fantastic view of Auckland and the Islands. This is a must place to visit for overseas visitors. Take a picnic eat and take in the view. Even when windy you can move to the other side out of the wind.

An awful lot of people I met told me to visit the Auckland Tower for the best view over Auckland. I thought otherwise for two reasons: 1) It was rather pricey and I was a backpacker on a budget. 2) Seeing Auckland from the tower meant seeing it without the iconic tower and just one piece at a time.
