Apart from the fact there is no longer a tree here thanks to Maori activists, this is a great spot to visit and see a good panoramic view of Auckland City. Worth the drive or walk up here.

One Tree Hill is a must see in Auckland as one of Auckland's prime tourist stops. You can walk up or take your car up to the top to get 360 degree views of Auckland city. Definitely worth a visit.

Good drive or hike up the hill to see the monument. Get a good look of the city from here. There is dome history on the person who used to live here.

Yes there are suburban bus routes from the city that pass by , but no specific return buses . Depending on which side you start the walk will vary from 10- 15! Mins without photo stops :)
can you drive to the top?
