Great 360 degree views of the city! A short walk up, great for people of all ages. Let's you see all of Auckland from one place and has a very cool crater. You can almost see Wellington.

Great free activity to do in Auckland. On a clear day you get great 360 views all over the city. Moderate fitness needed to walk to top. Good footpath sealed all the way up. Safe environment for all ages. Must do if you like panoramic views if cities.

Mount Eden offers beautiful 360 degrees views and lets you see the crater of one of the 29 volcanic sites in the Auckland area. The 15-20 minutes climb is rewarding. More explanations on the top would have been useful.

Used to be able to drive up here but the greedy iwi now use the excuse of conservation (but really to shake down money), to stop this. THE ROAD IS ALREADY THERE!

Mt Eden is an enjoyable stroll from the car park approx 300m away. Once at the top enjoy some very beautiful views of Auckland and surrounding suburbs. Getting there just before sunset or sunrise adds further beauty.

Decided to go for a walk up Mt Eden on a cool overcast morning .A choice of ways to get to the summit , we chose the paved road and despite the steepness it was a comfortable walk , we are mid 50's age wise . Over 3/4 of the way up the clouds opened up and soaked us through... More

We love to go to viewing spots in the cities we visit. It was a very clear day so we enjoyed pristine reviews of Auckland from this vantage point. You can stay as long as you want or just a quick visit and enjoy the 360 views of this conderful city.

This is one of the many stops for the Hop On Hop Off bus. I was able to hike from the bus stop and back within 1/2 hour so was able to catch the next bus and continue on the route. A 5-minute hike uphill from the bus stop will take you to the best views of Auckland, downtown in... More

Worth going to, one of the few free thing you can do in Auckland, you get a 360 view of the whole city.

We stayed at the wonderful "Eden Park" B&B and from there walked to the top of Mount Eden. The view was really nice 360 degrees around and the neighborhoods surrounding Mount Eden are quite nice with interesting architecture.
