Easy to reach and just 15min walk to the top, where there's a gigantic hole of an extinguished volcano. Awesome 360° view of Auckland

It's a mini-volcano with a phenomenal view of the city. I regret not climbing down into the crater. I walked all the way up from Ponsonby Rd., which took a couple of hours, because I meandered. Worked up a nice sweat by the summit. Way down was much faster, due to downhill and also chose a much more direct route.

The views from Mount Eden are amazing, but be warned that there is a fair walk from where the car park is and there appeared to be nowhere to buy refreshments. Worth the effort.

We went to both one tree hill and mount eden. We like mount eden more. We went at 530 to wait for the sunset and it was beautiful!!!!! highly recommend if you are staying in Auckland for the night and has a car. Walking up the summit would be quite a hike especially after dark as it gets quite chilly... More

We love to take our visitors to the top of Mt Eden. You get a great view of Auckland on a clear day. The walking is fairly easy and usually it is not too busy. It s free to visit.

Basically I paid top price just to live near this magic mountain. Don't drive up - the walk makes the view (inside the crater and of the harbour) all the more amazing.

Before you see any "tourist attractions" take a trip up Mt Eden and enjoy some impressive views over Auckland City and beyond. Only minutes from Downtown Auckland you can see an impressive volcano crater, see scattered remnants of boundary walls of scoria built by the early settlers and imagine the hill once used by the Maoris as a fortified pa....

This is a major tourist attraction with bus loads of tourists being taken up there daily. It is easy access by car or you can walk up there if you wish. The car park is on the side of the volcano (extinct) and you have great views of the city and harbour and of the actual volcanic crater

Great if you want to do some exercise or take fish and chips up and watch the sun go down. That's about it x

Nice mix of old and new - a steep road, great views, historic sites and a rural feel within a large city.
