Whether you want views, history, food or shopping.... it can all be had here. A roundabout land route can be shortened by a ride on the Fullers Ferry from Pier 1, Queens Wharf. Return tickets for adults cost 12.50NZ$ or the AT Hop top-up card...More

As the cars passed us by, I wanted to chant "Cheaters!" as we huffed and puffed up the hill. Parts of it are really steep, while other parts are just plain steep. One pleasant surprise on the way up was passing the Michael King Writers...More

It was a short but steep walk/climb up the mountain taking the 'short cuts' through the bushes. Very rewarding with the amazing 360 degree views and cool breeze. Car park was busy with the limited parking space.
