“Pretty”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Also Mt Eden it self is a good hike and worth visiting, you see a panoramic view of Auckland. It was about a 20 min hike, We got lost on the way down. One of the entrances to the crater has a massive tree with a swing not sure which though.

“A must see”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Great 360 degree view over Auckland. Take the dirt tracks for a more athletic and interesting walk up the cone. Well worth the visit.

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Mt Eden has great views all around Auckland. Always a nice place to come and just watch as everything just passes you by. Best place is sitting is on the bench at the end of the field below the main lookout, just off to the right. Take a book to read or camera, especially on a beautiful summers day. Or just walk around the tracks circling the Mountain, there are lots a spots to stop and admire the view.

“A must-do in Auckland”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We visited Mount Eden on a clear day and enjoyed fantastic views. The summit was easy to reach by car and had plenty of parking space. The drive up alone provided some excellent scenery, so I bet the hike would have been even better.
We did take a stroll through the fields past the viewing point to see more of the crater and, most importantly - Auckland from all angles! It was really impressive and made for some great pictures.

Mind your clothes as it can get windy, but be sure to not miss this easy and highly enjoyable trip!

“The View is Worth the Walk”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Mt Eden is one of the best vantage points in the city other than the Sky Tower to get a view. You'll be able to see both oceans and get a good view of the surrounding suburbs.

If you are adventurous you will find that there are many hidden tracks up the volcano.
