Superb view of the city. The walk up could be tiring but definitely worth it. Do pack your picnic basket too.

My partner and I climbed Mount Eden during the coast to coast walk. The views of the city centre and surrounds were fantastic. Worth a visit.

From Mt Eden, you can get a full 360-degree view of Auckland and the surrounding area. However, if you are including this site in the Coast to Coast walk, be warned that Mt Eden is in a residential area and there are very few facilities and almost no amenities in the area.
