Take a look at what Auckland has to offer:

One Tree Hill/Maungakiekie

With extensive views of the city from the summit, One Tree Hill/Maungakiekie is Auckland’s largest and intact volcanic cones, with three craters and a lava field that extends out to the Manukau shoreline. This was also the largest and mostly intensively settled pa in Auckland and was the centre of the Māori occupation during the 18th century when tribes of the region were united under the paramount chief Kiwi Tamaki.

Auckland Domain and Museum

The only venue in Auckland where visitors can experience a Māori cultural performance daily, Auckland Museum is renowned for its unique collection of Māori and Pacific treasures and is a war memorial for the Auckland province.

One of the finest museums in the Southern Hemisphere and housed in one of the country’s finest heritage buildings, the story of New Zealand as a nation is told; from award-winning natural history exhibits to galleries which investigate New Zealand’s cultural origins.

The museum is set within the spacious and diverse Auckland domain which itself is a sight to behold. A natural amphitheatre created within the 75-hectare park that has been developed around the cone of an extinct volcano. Formal gardens, sculptures, ponds and springs alongside sports fields and picnic spots.

Mount Eden/Maungawhau

At 196 metres high, Mount Eden/Maungawhau is the highest of the Auckland volcanoes. Climb up to the summit for a stunning expansive outlook over the city and the Waitemata Harbour beyond. Formed around 20 to 30,000 years ago, Mount Eden features three main craters in a row, creating an oval shape covered in lush green parkland. View the occupation terraces, storage pits and housing sites of the former Māori settlement.

So visitors can safely explore this special place and observe the spiritual and cultural significance of the summit to mana whenua, the original Māori inhabitants of Auckland are respected by no longer allowing vehicles to drive to the top. However, we can take you as far as vehicles are allowed for you to explore on foot the views and treasures of this site.
