A bit of a hike uphill but the scenery is enjoyable and the view is good in nice weather. Careful though, there is no separate walking path just a road used by city commuters.

Amazing views - take the step drive. Either as one of your first things upon arriving in Auckland or your last, it is worth the drive to see Auckland.

This only needs 15 minutes and it's all pretty low key but you do get attractive views of the CBD. A brisk walk can get you from CBD to the top in 30 minutes.

A good location to go on a fine day to look at the lay-out of Auckland and the other volcanic domes in the city area

Call me crazy, but this place is actually better than the sky tower - for so many reasons. To begin with, it is a lovely park, complete with walking trails and natural spaces; then there is the historic monument built by surveyors of the city; then there is the crater of Mount Eden at your feet; There are birds and trees and other things al fresco; and oh, did I mention that it is free? Loved it!
