Mt. Eden Volcanic Summit 

The Mt. Eden walk is an easy 2k walk that will take you around 1 hour to complete. Just 5 km from down town Auckland it's the highest volcano in Auckland on Mt Eden. The last eruption was about 15,000 years ago, leaving a crater 50 metres deep. Walk to the top of Mt Eden Volcano, there you'll get a 360° view of Auckland so long as the rain stays away.

Auckland War Memorial Museum & Domain

The Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira (or simply the Auckland Museum) is one of New Zealand's most important museums and war memorials. Its collections concentrate on New Zealand history. Explore some of the best Auckland Museum has to offer on our Highlights guided tour! Feed your curiosity as our local guides share their knowledge and introduce you to our various galleries. Journey through Aotearoa, learning of its' people and their place in the Pacific. Discover the remarkable flora and fauna found from north to south and delve into the conflicts that have shaped the nation. You'll also find out about one of New Zealand’s finest heritage buildings, the Museum itself! The Auckland Domain is Auckland's oldest park, and at 75 hectares one of the largest in the city. Developed around an extinct volcano, it features tropical gardens, duck ponds and public art and is also home to Auckland’s war memorial museum.

Coastal Drive

Coastal Drive through Kohimarama, Mission Bay and Tamaki Drive before proceeding to Auckland’s North Shore. 

Bastion Point offers magnificent views out over the Hauraki Gulf and Waitematā Harbour, as well as back to central Auckland. It’s one of the best places in Auckland to take photos of the skyline and harbour. As the name suggests, its position overlooking the harbour makes it an ideal defence point for the city. The Māori name for this area is Takaparawhā. This scenic area includes the Savage Memorial, which commemorates Michael Joseph Savage, one of New Zealand’s most beloved prime ministers.

Achilles Point was originally named Te Pane o Horoiwi (the head of Horoiwi) due to the Maori history of the site. It was renamed by the council in 1940 in honour of the New Zealand crewed ship HMS Achilles. The HMS Achilles defeated the German cruiser Graf Spee in the 1939 Battle of the River Plate, the first major naval battle of World War II. Achilles Point has great views of the Waitemata Harbour, and of course the Gulf Islands. Not so much a venue for actvities, but the views say it all..

Mt. Victoria

Drive through Auckland City’s Iconic Harbour bridge and Visit Mt. Victoria located in Devonport. It’s easily accessible by foot and the walk typically takes around 10-20 minutes – depending on how many times you stop and admire the views! At the summit of Mount Victoria you’ll find one of Devonport’s disappearing guns, one of only a few left in the world. Historically, Mt. Victoria has a number of artillery emplacements and various concrete bunkers, one of which is now a music venue for the Devonport Folk Club. Loved by locals and visitors, Mount Victoria is one of the best vantage points in all of Auckland. Enjoy spectacular views of the Auckland City Skyline and the stunning Waitemata Harbour – have your camera ready!
