Mount Eden is a lovely quick hike which leads to beautiful views of the city on the right day. I recommend a meal at Rad cafe before or after the hike - not to be missed when in Mt Eden!

You get to see all round Auckland from the top, and we saw and heard Tui's. Looking down into a extinct volcano is a bit cool! Not too challenging a walk, but take your own water.
