We drove up here; not sure if it is accessible by public transport. Great views all around and an interesting walk around the rim of the volcano. You get a good view of the whole city which is great for orientation; and nice to identify it on the landscape after.

Mt. Eden is a nice walk up from Auckland. From the centre it will probably take some time to get here just walking, but the way up is not that heavy: locals even do their morning run here! Once you've made it to the top you will have a beautiful view over Auckland skyline.

It's a bit of a climb but it worth it. not only one of the best views of the city and harbour but in order to really understand the fact that Auckland is built on volcanos you need to see on. and that's the best one in town.

A short drive and easy hike up the walk. You get to view the crater of a volcano and also get a beautiful view of Auckland, the harbor, and all surrounding areas. Well worth the effort. And, it's free.

Parked at the bottom and walked up the road through the trees to the top. Great view of Auckland as well as south to the airport. Plenty of room at the top so good views even if it's busy.

Definitely recommend a visit to Mount Eden. Easy to get to and well marked. Gives you a birds eye view of Auckland. Great views. Also, it's an introduction and reminder to New Zealand's 'geo-status', once being a volcano and not that long ago.

Please note, as part of a trial I believe will be permanent. You can no longer drive up Mt Eden. You must walk!! Great views, but you do need to be fit. Be nice if they thought to arrange a little train to take the tourists up in shifts as the views on a clear day are spectacular. Seemingly if... More
