Mount Eden, Auckland

#2 of 55 in Parks in Auckland
Must see · Volcano · Nature / Park
Reach Auckland's highest point with a hike to the top of Mount Eden, created by a dormant volcano that towers 196 m (643 ft) above sea level. Once you get to the top, take a break and enjoy dramatic full-circle views of the city below, its harbors, and the volcano's intact bowl-shaped crater. According to Maori legend, this 50 m (160 ft) deep crater was the home of Mataaho, a god who guarded secrets hidden in the earth. The moderate hike is manageable for people of most fitness levels as well as children. Pack a snack to enjoy at one of the picnic tables after your hike. Put Mount Eden and other Auckland attractions into our Auckland online trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
