forget about the sky tower to have a nice view over Auckland city ! I walked to Mount Eden (I like hiking , but this one is very easy and short , good for everyone), but buses also go there. Or you can drive, there is a car park) and the view is absolutely stunning ! not only you can see Auckland and the two baies , but also the Crater !! It's aboslutely unique to walk around a dead volcano's crater And have such a view over a major city. Great experience !!
I honestly think you would miss out if you didn't go to Mount Eden. The photo is now my wall paper screen on my laptop and smart phone !
