This is one of the tallest volcanic peaks in the city of Auckland. Known as the This Māungakiekie, it is also a sacred memorial ground for the Maori settlers. It used to have a single totara tree at the top but in the late 1800’s it was replaced by a pine tree. In the end of the 20th century the tree was attacked and destroyed twice and currently does have a tree.
This small coastal town on the South Island is a haven for seafood lovers.
