“Mt. Eden is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

It is a beautiful walk to the top of Mt. Eden, an extinct volcano. The views of Auckland and the surrounding area are some of the best you can find.

“Historic part of Auckland, nice village atmosphere and great views from Mt Eden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is one of many, many extinct volcanoes that dot this part of New Zealand. It used to have volcanic rock called scoria and many of the volcanoes in the are were mined for this to make drains. Luckily this survived and now it is a historic part of Auckland with many 100 year old homes in the are. It is on;y about 3-4km from the city center, so walking distance o there are many buses.

Eden Park where they play Rugby gets crowded if there is a game on

Many restaurants and cafes in the local village so well worth a visit

“A quaint village in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Mount Eden is a quaint little village in the middle of Auckland City. With great shops (like the little bookshop in the middle of the town and the candy store), and great cafes you can't go wrong. The village is surrounded by beautiful old villas which sit in the valley of Mt Eden. If you are after a great view of the city, take a walk up the mountain (it's a really easy walk) and check it out!

“Walk to the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great view. Could see for miles. A nice walk to the top. If you are out of shape this might be to much to walk to the top.

“Wet and windy but worth one's while”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We did the coast-to-coast walk and really enjoyed it. We were guided to Mt Eden en route and very much appreciated the view of Auckland - both north and south. A great vantage point and a nice place to stand on the lip of a volcanic crater!
