One of the larger scoria cones in the Auckland volcanic field, Mt. Eden (196 meters) has three craters with extensive storage, defensive and habitation earthen remains. Known by Maori as Maungawhau, or hill of the whau tree, Mt. Eden is the principal trig station for Auckland surveys. Accessible by both road and path, Mt Eden offers extensive views out over Auckland into the Hauraki Gulf and beyond. Tourists can have a bus drop them off at the mountain or they can take a 10 to 15-minute stroll from the train station. Nearby is the Government House where the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra's annual Summer Matinee Concert takes place.
