Well worth the short bus ride at 2NZD, this walk gives a view of the whole city. We had a good wonder around the shops and met some friendly locals. Definitely worth a look!

Used to work near here and would sometimes walk to the top for lunch. Great views of the city and the volcano looks really neat as well.

Mount Eden is a must do while in Auckland! You can drive up there and the views over Auckland are brilliant. A great place for the kids who can check out the crater and spend time exploring whilst the adults take in the 360 degree vistas over Auckland.

The tallest of the 3 craters in the city center and has a great botanical garden at the bottom. Great views of the city and nice walking trail as well.

Mount Eden is a very nice place. The parklands are great and the views of Auckland are excellent. It feels like your in the countryside so close to the city.

If you are fit and agile, it is a good bit of exercise to get to the top and overlook the city. On this occasion we had a tour guide bus take us up which was nice. You can see the 2 mountain ranges and the 2 seas that pen Auckland in and get cracking views of the city. It... More

This is a dormant volcano. Very exciting to be able to walk around a real volcano that could go off anytime but perhaps not in our lifetime. It was a little windy on our visit but that added to the excitement.
