Enjoying the views from Maungawhau/Mt Eden
Jun 2021 • Family
Parking available near entrance & it didn’t take too long to get to the summit. The boardwalk is gorgeous & gives you access to some amazing views. Worth the visit. Family and dog friendly as well.

Worth the walk
May 2021
Only took my friend and I 30 minutes to go up and back down. So worth the walk. It is quite steep but it is well paved and the view from the top is amazing!

Amazing views all over Auckland
Apr 2021
One of my favourite places in Auckland, so many memories of when my grandparents use to live in this area. Beautiful views from the top but a shame you cannot any longer drive to the top.

Steps, broad walk & viewing platform now added
Mar 2021 • Couples
With the closure of the road to the summit of this special Maunga the walk to to the top has become more peaceful. This is quite possibly the best free view of Tamaki Makaurau (196M). The addition of the broad walk and viewing platform designed to keep visitors off the terra and protect the historic site seems to be working. A nice walk for the family with great views across the city.

Spectacular
Mar 2021 • Couples
My son took my wife and I here today. We had spectacular views in perfect weather. I was really impressed with the boardwalk with its screw piles to protect the perimeter of the volcanic cone. Awesome.

Perfect Spot to View the City of Auckland
Apr 2020
The hike to the summit is quite challenging especially for little kids. This is perhaps one of the best spots to view the Auckland City and magnificent views of the harbour.

View from the top
Jan 2021
Great way to spend a sunny afternoon to enjoy Auckland's view for free. You see several calderas albeit covered in grass. When you reach the peak, there is a compass like structure or edifice that shows the distance from other cities. On our way down, we decided to stop by the cafe. My husband had a cold beer while I had a blueberry milkshake. Perfect ending.

Well worth going to. A good walk up to the top - took us maybe 15/20mins. Views were amazing and the boardwalk was really cool too

Perfect Inner Suburban View
Jan 2021 • Family
It isn’t much of an effort to climb Mount Eden and the view from the top (particularly of the inner suburbs) is great to work out what Auckland looks like. Mt Eden is part of the Isthmus coast to coast walkway which is also worth doing.
