Another pretty drive up a tall hill, and great views of the city from the top, including a large crater.

This was a fun way to spend a few hours on the day we arrived in Auckland. We liked the walk, the views, and had chance to learn about Auckland's history.

The 360 degree panorama of Auckland from the summit of this extinct volcano is absolutely superb. At my age, I opted to drive: had I been younger and fitter I would have walked. Be sure to have adequate sunscreen protection and a cool drink if you make your visit on a sunny summer's day.

Short distance from the city center, we drove there in the evening and were welcomed to lovely views of Auckland. 360 degree panoramic scenes. Quite splendid!
