Mount Eden

At just 196m, Mount Eden (Maungawhau) is Auckland city’s highest volcano. It is only a few metres higher then several other cones, and doesn’t poke far above the surrounding suburban housing, but the summit car park affords extensive views all around. Unfortunately it is on just about every tour bus itinerary, so once at the summit take a walk around the cone rim for a more peaceful viewpoint. Alternatively, walk here on the Coast to Coast Walkway.
