Our last day in New Zealand ... so to make the most of the day we got a bus to Mount Eden Road, leading to the foot of Mount Eden volcano. We continued up Mount Eden Road keeping to the west of Tahaki Reserve and entered by the car-park entrance. We then followed the tracks that lead across and then followed the Summit Road upwards.

Unlike a hill, since this is a volcano, you are not allowed to enter into or climb down into the centre. We continued on anticlockwise around the rim of the cone and returned down the eastern side until we reached the northern end of the park. We retraced our track west and then north back along the road to the bus station.

At 196 meters, this is the highest volcanic cone in the area. There is nowhere in NZ that you are far away from either distant or current volcanic activity. From the top of Mount Eden you can see all the bays, the land between Manukau Harbour and Hawaki Gulf and also look 50 meters down into the old volcano’s crater.

A really nice scenic walk with 360 degree views and easy access.
