Easy drive - one-way up and another one-way down, so don't worry about the seemingly narrow road. Very windy, tie up those long tresses for great selfies :)

Lovely walk to the top, beautiful 360 views and amazing seeing the crater in the middle. Take a picnic to sit and enjoy at the top.

Stopped here during our stay in Auckland. The view of the city is truly great and one that should not be missed. Even with a quick thunderstorm it was fun to get out and walk around the creator.

My Eden is in one of the central suburbs so easy to get to. You can park up the top but it's a good walk up from the bottom. You can walk around the crater but not go inside it. A great view of the city from the top! No toilets up there though.

Amazing 360 view over the bays and surrounding areas. The lack of decent signs for the coast to coast walk.

For me, there are two iconic landmarks that make Auckland immediately recognisable, the harbour and the Sky Tower. A photograph of Auckland taken from the tower lacks one major feature, the tower itself. A short public transport bus ride, followed by a quite strenuous (for an old bloke) uphill walk brings you to the summit of Maungawhau, Mount Eden. From... More

Incredible view of the city and the surrounding areas. Incredibly windy, remember to bring a jacket so you can enjoy the view longer.
