Mount Eden, Auckland Central

About Mount Eden:

Mount Eden is a suburb of Central Auckland, New Zealand, situated 4 kilometres south of the Central Business District. The suburb is home to Auckland’s highest natural point, Mt Eden, at 196 metres above sea level, which naturally provides some of the finest 360-degree views of Auckland City. 

The hub of all shopping and business activities in Mount Eden’s village is Mt Eden Lane, between Oaklands Road and Grange Road.

At the 2018 New Zealand census, Mount Eden had a population of 14,697 with 4,959 households.

Maungawhau (Mount Eden)

Maungawhau is a Māori-language word that means 'mountain of a whau tree.' Mt Eden is one of the most iconic volcanic cones in the Auckland region and provides spectacular views of the city and the harbour. 

The summit of Mount Eden is 196 metres above sea level. You can see many of Auckland's famous attractions on a clear day, including the Sky Tower, the Auckland Harbour Bridge, the Waitakere Ranges and the Rangitoto Island. 

Local Schools

Mount Eden Normal School and Ficino School are primary schools, and Auckland Normal is an intermediate school serving Mount Eden’s community.

Several prestigious secondary schools are situated in and around Mt Eden, including St Peter's College, Epsom Girls Grammar School and Auckland Grammar School, and the University of Auckland’s Epsom Campus.

A funny, candid moment in Mount Eden, Auckland, New Zealand:
On the bottom right one can clearly see a warning sign - “do not enter Crater”.
However our young kid seems to have other ideas and was signalling to his father he’d like to try.
.
Here you can also witness the volcanic nature of New Zealand’s landscape.
Mount Eden is actually a dormant volcano and is just a few kilometres outside of the main Auckland city - hence the reference to “crater” in the signboard.

(I’m sharing memories of my travels in New Zealand. I'm hopeful that the world will go back to life before the dreaded pandemic - like how New Zealand does it)⁠

+++ 🇳🇿 Auckland - Best in Travel 2022 +++

Auckland ist die größte Stadt Neuseelands mit 1,4 Millionen Einwohnern. Dabei liegt sie an der schmalsten Stelle der nördlichen Insel, umrahmt von zwei Häfen. Auf dieser Fläche bietet das Gebiet dafür umso mehr: 53 Vulkane, mehr als 50 Inseln, drei Weinregionen und etliche Strände

🌋 Feurig: Im "Auckland Volcanic Field" liegen rund 50 Vulkankegel. Keine Sorge, Lava spucken sie zurzeit nicht. Sie zu besuchen ist allerdings ein echtes Erlebnis. So lässt sich zum Beispiel am Mount Eden nicht nur tief in den Krater blicken, sondern auch weit über die Stadt (siehe Foto).

☝️Hoch hinaus: Der Sky Tower ist das Wahrzeichen der Stadt. Mit seinen 328 Metern gilt er als höchster Fernsehturm der südlichen Halbkugel. Hier lässt sich nicht nur ein Rundumblick über die Stadt genießen - und das sogar bis in die Nacht hinein -, sondern es lässt sich auch in einem der der drei Restaurants speisen. Noch nicht genug? Mutige melden sich zum Skywalk oder zum Skyjump an ... auf 220 Metern Höhe draußen am Turm. Viel Spaß!

🎭 Kultur: In Auckland City hat sich eine feste Kunst- und Kulturszene etabliert. Die spiegelt sich auch wider in den verschiedenen Theater und Museen der Stadt. Die Auckland Art Gallery etwa sammelt und zeigt Kunst aus aller Welt - beginnend bei den frühen Siedlern bis hin zu moderner Kunst. Auch asiatische Meister sind hier zu sehen. Das Wallace Arts Centre konzentriert sich dagegen auf einheimische Kunst. Bei den Museen ist hingegen das Auckland Museum ein Muss. In dem prachtvollen Bau erfährt man viel zur Geschichte und Kultur der Maori, dem Vulkanfeld von Auckland, aber auch zum Thema Kriegsteilnahme im vergangenen Jahrhundert.

Auckland ist übrigens als Sieger der Städte für Best in Travel 2022 gewählt worden.

Company during your career break can be golden!

It can feel terrific to share the experience.

And right now, as you prepare, you might be feeling a little lonesome. Some companionship might sound delightful.

So when someone asks if they can join in, you may be tempted to say, “Of course.”

But hold that thought for a moment.

Imagine what it would be like to have that person, and all the different people who might travel with them, stay with you. Spin out the scenario.

Where would they sleep? 🛌

How much hosting would be expected of you? 👩‍🍳

How long do you anticipate they would stay? 📆

Would that companionship enhance and support your experience? Or might it detract from what you’re trying to create for yourself?

You might start hosting guests as soon as your career break begins, to kick it off and celebrate.

Maybe you invite collaborators to join you and, as you get acquainted with each other and your new surroundings, it may inspire your work.

There aren’t any rules about how do this, and you have many choices.

Consider what best suits your plans. ✨
