Awesome views of Rangitoto Island in the morning.. And at night, you get to see the beautiful Harbour Bridge and Viaduct Harbour all lit up.. You can stare at it all day/night long..

Great views to be had from short walk to the top of two Volcano's overlooking the city, plus magnificent harbor and islands in the gulf. Plenty of shops and cafe's to sit in and watch the yachts sail past.
