Excellent views from the top and worth a visit with friends. Was windy during winter and spring but enjoyed the visit.

This should be on the itinerary for people visiting Auckland! Seeing a massive crater in the middle of a city in itself was pretty cool, and the views of Auckland were excellent. We drove up to the top but saw many people walking up on the way. Only takes a quick stop but definitely worth it.

Recommend the Coast to Coast walk beginning in Onehunga and taking in Mt Eden. Complete your walk at Britomart where refreshments abound

This is the place to be to get your bearings if you are new to Auckland. A trip to the summit of Mt Eden will ensure you know where the sights of the City are and head to explore them later. Great view of the city centre and of the harbour and Rangitoto and views beyond. Day or night, a... More

Brilliant views of Auckland, unlike any others I've seen in a larger city. Driving is easy to get there also.

Definitely the best place in Auckland city to get the best 360 view of Auckland city!! The craters around the hill makes it so dramatic and if you go on a day of blue sky, you will be guaranteed some stunning pictures!!

Ever! Wonder why you can't go to the roof of your own apartment building? Because Auckland has it's own wonderful,natural roof with beautiful greenery, a volcanic crater and volcanic rim with great view of Auckland city.

I initially had way too many expectations of this place. I imagined it to be very high but it really was not too high. The walk from the bottom of the summit to the top took around 20 minutes! Haha it was a great walk though, great 360 view. Nice place to try out those fancy panorama effects on our... More

Despite the drizzly weather, we still enjoyed our visit to the top of Mount Eden. Here you can catch 360 degree views of Auckland City without having to pay a thing. Access is by foot or vehicle and is a pretty drive up and down. Highly recommended, especially on a lovely sunny day.

Even if it was windy, it was really enjoyable to watch this excellent 360 degree view + have a picnic at this mountain top.
