“Good exercise to get on top of the island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

It is a good day trip to get to the island in the late morning, and do a excursion with friends to the top of the island for a splendid Auckland harbour view.

“Trip off shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Absolutely amazing, plenty to do even if you're not fit.
It's a good trek up the hill, you will use up many heart beats however the end result is well worth it.
Plenty of caves to explore on the way

“Rangitoto experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Fantastic day out, 1st the ferry across the waitamata harbour, then a semi grueling walk up a crusted lava trail [ check out the lava tubes] and at the top a 360 degree view of the harbour and Auckland city.

“Great way to spend time away from the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

This island is different from other islands as the recent volcanic eruption is still evident. Great, easy walk to the summit and view of auckland.

“a good day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

a good day out and the kids liked it.
Weather was very poor which spoilt it.
On a good day the view from the mountain would be brilliant
