The reserve was on old battery for the defense of Auckland. It's been converted to an open space. There's still a gun placement. Mostly the mount is a great place to catch a view of Auckland. You'll need to take the ferry to Davenport and...More

Driving up Mount Victoria's winding, steep road is certainly worth every minute spent there. The views over the city and the Gulf is simply spectacular and makes for amazing photo opportunities.

Climbing this hill is a solid but very achievable workout. The reward is a magnificent 360 view of Auckland City, Rangitoto, the harbour and surrounds. Highly recommended.

Fantastic views of Auckland, well worth the walk to the top. No charge to go up Mt Victoria and it's also dog friendly, with cute little toadstools scattered along the way. Definitely a must do if you're in the area.

I just loved the cute little toadstools! Another great place to admire the city. There is an old gun back from the World War days, plenty of great places to explore on the mount.

We caught the ferry across from Auckland. Easy 12 mins, lovely views. Deciding to walk straight up the rugged path rather than the road was a challenge but well worth it. Be advised that there is no notice at the bottom of the hill climb...More
