Called the Volcanic One Tree Hill, the cone was once the highest point in the greatest fortress in the country. It contains a grave and a memorial.
Volcanoes in New Zealand
New Zealand is a land that is no stranger to volcanoes. Some of them are very active and can result in instant desolations while others have long since died. There are a total of 14 known volcanoes and volcanic islands scattered across the country.
Cornwall Park is a historic location that should be explored at leisure, so you can stay in one of the luxury hotels in Auckland and visit One Tree Hill. The monument was dedicated to the Maori people and built on the land donated by John Logan Campbell to the city in 1901.
You can get there very easily from Naumi Hotel Auckland Airport by taking the train from Auckland to Greenlane and then walking for about a kilometre along Green Lane West. If you are coming by car you can take the exit off the Southern Motorway.
There is planetarium nearby as well as a children’s playground making the whole experience perfect for a family day out.
