Reviewed October 4, 2013

High point in Auckland with great views of the city and beyond on a clear day. Massive size of the crater which you can walk around.

“Fantastic views and photo opportunities.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

This is definitely a must see on a visit to auckland. If you like uphill hikes then this is a great one, or if not, just drive to the top for amazing views.

“A must do for Auckland Visitors”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Really spectacular to see the 360 degree views of Auckland from on top of Mt Eden. The crater is very unusual and spectacular and it's always the first place we take our overseas visitors. The gardens around it are well kept and it is just a lovely experience and a "must do" for visitors to Auckland

“Mt. Eden is a must”
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”
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
