One Tree Hill

One of the more dramatic looking peaks in Auckland is One Tree Hill. It’s distinguishing feature is the large obelisk on the top. When Auckland was founded as a colonial town in the mid 19th century, there was a lone tree near the summit. Sadly this was cut down and replaced a number of times over the years. From this low, zoomed in view point it is impossible to see the crowds that gather around the base of the obelisk.
