The trip to Mount Eden was a glimmer of hope in dismal Auckland. The neighborhood is quaint and the walk around the crater for the view of Auckland is worthwhile.

After barely getting to stay at the top of One Tree Hill due to the crowds, Mount Eden with its large area to walk around and ample parking was a relief. Very cool to stand on the edge of an old volcano crater. The streets driving to it were a little tricky, but this was a great reward.

Mount Eden was definitely my favorite sight in Auckland and one of the coolest places on the North Island.
While there isn't a lot to do on the crater, it was fun just to walk around the top of the crater and admire this unique natural beauty. The view is better than the Sky Tower and it was free. The lack of tour buses made the sight even more enjoyable.
Like any high point in New Zealand, it was cold and windy so bring a jacket.

Superb views over Auckland, and a very impressive volcano crater: worth the effort to get to from the centre.

This has to be the best place to see all of Auckland and surrounding areas. It is free to visit and gives you a brilliant overview to familiarise yourself in the city.
