Perhaps the best view of Auckland apart from the revolving restaurant in Sky City is from the top of One Tree Hill in Cornwall Park. It has history too; a monument dedicated to the memory of the Maori people, who it was thought at the time were on the verge of dying out. Their resurgence has included activists making persistent attempts to chop down the eponymous tree.
The park itself is a great place for a family picnic, with barbeques for hire.
