Volcanoes!

One of my favourite things about Auckland are the 50+ volcanoes scattered across the city, which provide stunning views and a good workout!

Mt Eden, One Tree Hill and North Head are probably the most popular but these three are also pretty awesome.

Welcomes me back to Auckland whenever I drive past it on the way home from the airport. One of the largest volcanoes with two cones and great views out across the Manukau Harbour.

Normally a bit greener than this, but well positioned to truly comprehend the scale of the Stonefields development. Combine with a lap of Panmure Basin for a good 7.5km running circuit.

Well kept secret in South Auckland featuring two volcanic cones, some ancient trees and the Otatahu Rugby League Club!
