“Great view and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

Another fantastic view over Auckland. GPS helpful to find the route there otherwise we would not have found it reading a map. Easy drive up and plenty of parking. Some history about the cutting down of the tree. No tree now. Looking back to Mt Eden where we were looking closer to the city. Lovely place and park down below the summit. Cornwall park.

“Wedding at Sorrento One Tree Hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Sorrento in the Park, at One Tree Hill Auckland, New Zealand has been here for a very long time, it is used mainly as a Wedding Venue...It is very well set up.
I conducted a Wedding there 26/10/13, it was out doors nice warm day and the grounds are really kept in tip top order. We had about 150 guests and still plenty of room.
Should the weather turn bad they have plenty of in side areas to move to.
People like it because it is all in one place, Wedding Ceremony and the food & dance.
It really is an old historic venue, one of the first wedding venues in NZ, Another great feature is it is in The Park of One Tree Hill , so just wonderful for photos, as a Wedding Celebrant I enjoy this setting makes a Happy Wedding. Pop in they will show you around.

“Great views and beauty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

This is in Cromwell Park, where you must visit, and it's at the very top of the hill. The views of Auckland and the islands is wonderful and it's just the culmination of a great park visit.

“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!
