  • Really great place for mountain biking! Nice, well maintained tracks and very nice and easy uphill "big easy". Very nice view from the top, you can walk, drive or bike up.
  • Excellent view of Duedin City. A must see if visiting.
  • The walk-up from the Botanic Gardens takes about 45 minutes. It is worth the privileged view you get of the Peninsula and North Dunedin. Enjoyed every minute.
  • Great views. Quite a drive/walk to get up here but week with it!
  • Gorgeous walk up the hill. Fantastic view. Well worth the trip.
