Exploring Maungawhau Mt Eden
Exploring Maungawhau Mt Eden
Our volcanic past explored

It’s not surprising our Year 11 Geography students are fascinated by volcanoes – when Auckland sits on a volcanic field with at least 53 of them.

Auckland’s volcanoes including Maungawhau Mt Eden, Maungauika North Head, Takarunga Mt Victoria, Maungakiekie One Tree Hill and Rangitoto are among our most-photographed landmarks. They have ancient spiritual and cultural histories – and fascinating geological pasts.

This week our Year 11 Geography students got up close and personal with one of them – Maungawhau Mt Eden, collecting data and looking for evidence of past and present use of our volcanic landscapes.
