iTravel NZ: Tranquility at Mt. Eden!

One of the most iconic places in New Zealand is Mt. Eden. It is located approximately 4 kilometers from Auckland CBD (15-20 minutes). It is the most prominent volcanic cones in the region which erupted about 15,000 years ago from three overlapping scoria cones. It formed a huge scoria mound with a central crater from the last eruption. If you are traveling to New Zealand, take a walk to the Summit! It is worth the panoramic view and it’s FREE!

After the excruciating university assessments last quarter, it is time to reward myself with few adventures this vacation. Let me share some. πŸ™‚

Commuting to Mt Eden Village is easy and you can do it by yourself. There are two services available; a fast and regular commuter service and a scenic service that takes in the other suburbs and key destinations in Auckland.


Departing at Britomart Station, you can take bus number 274 or 277 to Mt Eden Village return every 15 minutes, 7am to 7pm every day. Buses leaving approximately every 30 minutes. If you are taking the bus, don’t forget to bring your AT Hop card.
