SO beautiful! Aug 10, 2011
TOTALLY recommend you come here! Awesome most beautiful views of the shore on one side and Auckland city on the other, and a fun hill you can walk around and explore. There are old military tunnels and cannons still there for you to see, all dotted around the hill. Although some are closed off, some you can walk into and everything! Perfect place for a picnic or something like that, I love it here. There is a small amount of parking up there, but sometimes it is all full in which case you'll probably be best to come back later (unless you want to park somewhere on the street below and walk the steep walk to the lookout that is).

A good view of Auckland and its past Aug 02, 2008
A good view of all around auckland. Also a good walk, you can walk all through the tunnels and around the edge of the mountain.

We only just discovered, but at the top there is a small museum like thing with a video of the reason for the mountain.

Really recommend going here, especially on a nice day. Or even a windy day when you can see all the kite surfers down on the beach.
