  • Place for : photo and historical building A tall obelisk built to remembered this country 1st prime minister, Michael Joseph Savage Memorial is a place full of scenery and historical buildings. MJSM is surrounded by water at one side and buildings at the other side. In my opinion the best time to come to this place either when the sun is rising or setting, make sure u bring the right gear to take photos
  • I always remember the first time I went to Auckland more than 2 years ago and one of the first places I met was here. With that impressive view of the city. It is like a secret place you feel so great once you are there after the escalator to heaven that's the way I call it because you really feel that once you are there. Beautiful. Perfect place to sunset or sunrise time .
  • Love this place. It has a nice view over the mission bay and part of the city. Good place to see a sunset if it's not cloudy. 😉
  • Brilliant place for family outing, or just to get skyline view of Auckland city. Walk path to Mission bay. Parking space for approx 30 cars, restrooms on site
  • Peaceful location with rolling green knolls overlooking the city. Perfect place to watch the sunset. Tip: Walk behind the memorial down the grass slope (towards the tamaki yacht club) to find the ww2 bunkers.
