Mount Wellington is volcanic peak situated 12 kilometres, or a short 15 minute drive, from downtown Auckland. Standing at 135 metres, Mount Wellington is the youngest of Auckland's volcanic peaks having last erupted just over 10,000 years ago.

The volcanic  landmark is a popular spot with walkers and joggers who follow the Summit Trail to enjoy the 360 panoramic views of the city and surrounding region. The deep crater combined with the city skyline in the background provides a beautiful distraction from their exercise while keeping budding photographers busy.

Long after Mount Wellington's volcano became extinct, Maori settled on the site and altered the surface shape by levelling out areas for their settlement. Today, memorials can still be seen throughout the site. 

The entrance by car to Mount Wellington is accessed from Mountain Road and leads onto Memorial Drive, a steep drive to a small parking area where the Summit Walkway can be picked up. Those on foot, should head to the entrance/exit on Harding Avenue.
