The popular track climbs through the world's largest pohutukawa forest. The peak is 259 metres above sea level, so you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf. Get to island by ferry from either downtown Auckland or Devonport. The lava caves near the summit are well worth a visit. They are very dark so take a torch or headlamp to explore them. The biggest and easiest cave to access is at the end of the Lava Caves track. The route includes a visit to Kidney Fern Grove near the the ferry terminal. If visiting in summer, it can be hot and about 4C to 5C warmer than Auckland. There are no stores on the island so take ample food and water. Show more
