Parked at the bottom and walked up the road through the trees to the top. Great view of Auckland as well as south to the airport. Plenty of room at the top so good views even if it's busy.

Definitely recommend a visit to Mount Eden. Easy to get to and well marked. Gives you a birds eye view of Auckland. Great views. Also, it's an introduction and reminder to New Zealand's 'geo-status', once being a volcano and not that long ago.

Please note, as part of a trial I believe will be permanent. You can no longer drive up Mt Eden. You must walk!! Great views, but you do need to be fit. Be nice if they thought to arrange a little train to take the tourists up in shifts as the views on a clear day are spectacular. Seemingly if... More

This is a nice easy walk a little way from the center of Auckland. I went on a clear afternoon and the views were brilliant, however I would recommend trying to visit at a less busy time - it was very crowded with other tourists at the top.

The walk to the top of Mt Eden was quite steep and took longer than we had initially hoped as we were aiming to get there for sunset and almost missed it. The views were lovely and is definitely worth the climb.

We visited Mount Eden from the Hop On Hop Off tour and we loved it! There is a short yet steep walk up to the top and the views are totally worth it. You can see Auckland from 360 degrees and it's gorgeous. You get to walk around the edge of the volcanic crater which is amazing to look down... More

Be prepared for a climb as no traffic allowed but a very good workout. So worth the effort for the wonderful views of the city which enables you to gain your bearings and appreciate the volcanic base upon which Auckland is situated.
