Owner description: A trip up the highest volcanic peak in mainland Auckland offers striking views of the downtown area and harbor.

This location is very close to the City and worth the short venture out to drive up the hill and spend time looking over the Auckland CBD. Include the gentle walk around the crater and stop at the viewing spot half way and you will get magnificent photos of the city.

We took a short taxi trip from the cruise ship terminal up to the Mount Eden peak. The peak offers great panoramic views across Auckland so make sure you take your camera.

There are many walking tracks leading around and up/down the crater, whilst some are asphalt some are just crushed rock so make sure you take good sturdy walking shoes.

To get back from the peak, we had no phone so could not call a taxi, but took a leisurely stroll back to the Auckland CBD from the peak. This would have taken around 40 minutes at a leisurely pace.

Great spot to see the crater and the whole auckland! Don't miss it if you are in town. It's really fun to walk around the crater and think about what happened thousands of years ago but is so peaceful now.

A short walk to the summit earns a stunning panoramic view of Downtown Auckland as well as Waitemata Harbour! Definitely a must!
