You can view Auckland’s skyline from Mount Eden’s peak!

Mount Eden (also known as Maungawhau) is a dormant volcanic cone near central Auckland and is the city’s highest natural lookout point! In addition to enjoying its breathtaking views, you can walk up one of its 15-minute trails to find a 50-meter-deep crater which formed after the volcano erupted 28,000 years ago! You can also do the following here:

  • Learn about the site’s history as a Māori village.
  • Explore its pā terraces and food-storage pits from the former settlement.
  • Mingle with native birds and plants in the spacious Eden Garden.

 

2. Get a dose of Vitamin Sea at the Piha and Karekare beaches!

Piha Beach’s famous Lion Rock.

Due to its abundance of dormant volcanoes, Auckland is known for black sandy beaches formed by the lava created by these volcanoes. One of these pristine beaches is Piha, which is a 40-minute drive away from the city. Here, you can:

  • Go canyoning through Piha’s various canyons, waterfalls and pools.
  • Get your surf’s up with the beach’s powerful waves. (Beginner surfers can hit up Piha Surf Academy for lessons.)
