One Tree Hill


Auckland's One Tree Hill, also called Maungakiekie, and its surrounding Cornwall Park, was once one part of the largest Maori fortification in Auckland, built on top of the volcanic formations. The volcano's peak is marked with a giant obelisk in honor of the Maori people, along with the grave of Sir John Logan Campbell, European founder of the city. Unfortunately, you won't find the famed "One Tree," which was first cut down by a party of disgruntled workmen in the 1850s.
