Awesome views over Auckland City, 4 year old fascinated by the crater, free fun and in some ways better than the Sky Tower if you have energetic kids.

Climb from the Auckland City Centre to the crater of Mount Eden. The walk is obviously up hill, but it's all worth it because of the views once you reach the summit. In one word ' AMAZING'. you don't have to walk though, because you can reach it by using public transport by making use of your AT card on... More

This is my favourite place in the entire world (big call I know). I love it because it has a stunning view over Auckland and makes me feel like I'm a part of this city. It is amazing on a sunny day but my favourite is an early morning or later evening wander up as the sun is rising or... More

Mt Eden is very easy to get to - just a short bus trip from Auckland city (bus stop just outside the Britomart). Once there, it is a short but moderately steep climb to the crater. The crater itself is mediocre in my opinion, but the view of the city is breathtaking.

Mount Eden is basically a dormant volcano. Big vehicles cannot climb up. Since we were in a bus we had to climb up. We saw a lot of cars going to the top of the hill. The crater was like a lawn fully green. If you climb up further you can have a good view from the look out point.
