“Great views - fabulous photo opportunities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

The summit of Mt Eden provides a great position for views, and photos, over Auckland's city skyline and the Hauraki Gulf. It is a pleasant walk, for the moderately fit. In a city covered by volcanic cones, this is handily located very close to the city, and affords amazing views, day and night. Consider that the summit is, by its very nature, an elevated and exposed position, therefore warm clothing is advised!

“Amazing views of Auckland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Astonishingly this is one of many dormant volcanoes in Auckland, and one you can walk, run, cycle or drive to the top. Once there, it's an stunning panorama of the city. It's also free of charge, unlike the $28 Sky Tower. I'd recommend, especially on a nice day.

“Great place to take visitors straight from the airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Give visitors a sense of Auckland & a sense of wonder if they have never been up a volcano before! We take a lot of Australian friends up there on the way home from the airport - its a great way to introduce them to just how beautiful and different NZ is

I have never been so close to a volcanic crator ever. it is simply amaxing. You get a 360 Degree viwe of the city . Perfect place to get a glimse of sunrise and sunset. Very easy to access with car or public transport.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

It is a small volcano but you get a very good view of the crater with the city behind. You can walk back to the city center following the coas to coast walking track which is sign posted.
