Mt Eden

Auckland's highest volcano

Mt. Eden - Auckland

One of Auckland region's 14 Tūpuna Maunga (ancestral mountains), 196m-high Mount Eden (Maungawhau) is the highest volcano in Auckland.

From the summit, enjoy spectacular views of the city and its harbours. The large, well-preserved crater, 50m deep, is contained within the summit cone.

There is no vehicle access to the top of Mt Eden (there once was), but four pedestrian access points with well-marked paths.
