We took the longer walk, by accident, but it was really enjoyable. It was called the coast to coast and took about 25 mins at a leisurely pace. Had some fantastic views of Eden Park on the way up. The summit is spectacular, we had never seen anything like it. Great photo opportunities with views over the city from multiple... More

The blue line stops at mount Eden. You can get off and see great views of Auckland. Short steep walk to top vantage point. The bus returns in 30 minutes.

Mount Eden offers fantastic 360 view of the city of Auckland. You can easily see planes landing and taking off at the Auckland airport. It is a bit of a hike but worth of it - and the whole experience is totally free. A good place to have a picnic too.

A quick drive up to near the crater and then a short (but steep) walk to the summit. The views from up there are great and you can see both the Tasman Sea and Pacific Oceans as well as the many other volcanic craters around Auckland. Its close to town and the HOHO bus visits there so worth doing. There... More

If you want a great overview of Auckland, go to the top of Mt. Eden. It is the highest point in Auckland and is a dormant volcano. Have your hiking shoes on and be ready for a climb, but it isn't too difficult if you are physical. The view is amazing! You can see 360 degrees of the city. The... More

I cycled up to the top. Yes, it is a steep climb. The view across the volcanic crater to the city is worth all the effort. The suburb of Mt Eden is attractive also.

Great 360 degree views of the city! A short walk up, great for people of all ages. Let's you see all of Auckland from one place and has a very cool crater. You can almost see Wellington.

Great free activity to do in Auckland. On a clear day you get great 360 views all over the city. Moderate fitness needed to walk to top. Good footpath sealed all the way up. Safe environment for all ages. Must do if you like panoramic views if cities.
