Ōhinerau (Mount Hobson)
Mount Hobson, also known as Ōhinerangi and Remuwera, is a 143-meter-high volcanic cone in Auckland’s volcanic field, situated in the Remuera suburb, to the east of the commercial suburb of Newmarket.
It has been heavily changed by human use, first by Māori for use as a defensive settlement, then as a quarry and pasture land, and finally with a water reservoir built in its cone to supply the surrounding area.
