“The best view in Auckland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

Walk, climb or drive, but I reckon the summit of One Tree Hill is the BEST view over Auckland. Any time of the day gives 360 deg panoramic views. See Rangitoto Island, Auckland City, North Shore of Auckland, the Waitakerere Ranges out West, and the Auckland harbour bridge. See South to Mt Wellington and beyond or Otahuhu and Mangere towards the airport. Can be windy. Still missing a tree to make it One Tree Hill again though. Maybe renamed None Tree Hill for now.

“Maungakiekie "No Tree Hill".”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

It's a pity that some southern renegade Maoris chopped the historical tree down some years back and it still hasn't been replaced. Beautiful panoramic views. Warm jackets are required as it's a little windy up there. The surrounding "Cornwall Park" is also very picturesque.
