“Great city views from atop the hill!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

I loved driving through the beautiful Cornwall Park to get up to the top of "None Tree Hill". The monument and all of its inscriptions were really cool and it was nice to read up on the history of the area. There are beautiful rolling green hills and big trees all over and lots of big ol' sheep wandering around! We were able to see Rangitoto Island, and all around Auckland. Great photo spot!

“Lovely at sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Amazing view from the top looking out over all aspects of Auckland city. Very popular with joggers so watch out if driving! Lovely photos at sunset looking over 360 degree views. Well worth the drive and also if you want to have a jog up to the hill top!

“Awesome views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

In one spot you can climb the volcanoes, have a picnic lunch, explore some of Auckland history with an old house and see baby lambs frolicking. Amazing

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

The view from the summit of One Tree Hill stretches wide across Auckland in all directions. It's a nice walk to head to the top of the hill from Cornwall Park. One of my favourite things to do is to get some fish and chips from down the road and sit at the base of the hill for a fish and chips picnic. There's a great observatory there too!
