Mount Eden is recognised as being one of the few remaining genuine villages in greater Auckland’s area, only moments from the city’s centre. Mount Eden has retained a boutique feel as one of Auckland’s most established and prestigious suburbs, renowned for its tree lined streets, old historic villas and a wonderful variety of specialized shops to browse and enjoy.

Cafes and Restaurants
There is an excellent choice of restaurants and cafes moments walk away in Eden Village including the award winning Molten, the delightful Bowmans and the ever popular Eden Cloakroom bar and De Post Belgian style pub. The local cuisine on offer includes Thai, Japanese, European, Indian and French.

If you are interested in art, nkb is a boutique gallery in the hub of Mt Eden Village, with a passion for high quality New Zealand artwork whilst Mt Eden Picture Framers offer sculpture and other media works.

Time Out Bookstore is renowned for its excellent and eclectic range of books and CDs.

The Village Winery is an independent specialist shop where you will find a great selection of New Zealand wines, whiskeys and spirits.

Mt Eden itself overlooks the Village and is a short walk or drive to the summit where there is an excellent view of Auckland city, the harbour and surrounding suburbs.

On the side of Mount Eden, in an old quarry site are Eden Gardens which in the five acres the gardens cover is the largest collection of camellias in the Southern Hemisphere. Eden Gardens have a very pleasant café in delightful surroundings.

The Auckland Museum is situated close by in the Auckland Domain, while the Auckland Art Gallery is located in the City Centre. Just up the hill is the Auckland SkyCity Tower and Casino.

The viaduct is stunning in the summer, with lots of great cafes and people watching. From here you can catch a ferry to a number of the islands for day trips (see below). Around the harbour is Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World and Mission Bay is a great spot to spend an afternoon at the beach.

The Auckland Zoo and Museum of Transport & Technology is towards the west and you have miles of coast line and beaches over the North Shore as well as the very quaint and fashionable village of Devonport.
