Mt Eden

How to get here

The suburb of Mt Eden is situated five kilometres south of the centre of Auckland City. It is a vibrant community centred around the Mt Eden Village, a charming shopping area with many small shops, cafes and restaurants. At the very heart of the community and centrally located within the village is the Mt Eden Village Centre.

Events at the Mt Eden Village Centre can easily be attended by using public transport. There are bus stops within one minute’s walk from the Centre. The 274 and 275 buses (both of which travel between Britomart in central Auckland and Three Kings at the southern edge of the suburb of Mt Eden) and 277 (between Britomart and Waikowhai) are the most convenient buses for trips between the centre of Auckland and the Mt Eden village. Other buses passing through Mt Eden village include the 211 and 224 buses (Avondale to Mt Eden).

The Mt Eden Railway Station is on the Western Line and is easily accessible via a footbridge from Mt Eden Rd. It is situated approximately one kilometre from Mt Eden village.

For those who choose to come to an event on bike, there are two conveniently located bike stands in front of the Centre. We encourage our local board and Auckland council to continue to develop safe cycle lanes on the road so Mt Eden can be reached safely.

Mt Eden – Maungawhau (Mount Eden)

There are wonderful walks around Maungawhau (Mount Eden), a volcano whose summit is 196 meters above sea level. The summit is the highest natural point on the Auckland isthmus offering visitors a spectacular view of Auckland. Maungawhau was a fortified pa, a large Maori settlement site with many archaeological features of immense value. It is one of 15 volcanic cones that will be transferred to ownership of the Tamaki Collective under a treaty settlement agreement signed in November 2011.
