“Great free views of the city”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Free views- able to walk up the volcano and see views of Auckland for no cost. Was quite windy but clear and so we could see a long way

Reviewed September 25, 2012

“interesting reminder of volcanic activity - nothing spectacular”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Mt Eden is a suburb but we particularly visited the Mt Eden volcanic crater and lookout where you get a superb 360deg view of Auckland and surrounds. The crater itself is small enough to walk around in 10mins or so with several seats placed at intervals.

“Great Views”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Well worth a trip - some great views. It is quite exposed though, so bring something warm to wear! Got some great photographs.

“Great view but exposed so can be cold”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

The view is spectacular but it is very exposed and so in winter it is cold and windy up there, wear a warm jacket
