One Tree Hill, Auckland Overview

One Tree Hill is the second largest volcanic mountain in Auckland. It is often visited because of its parks and features an Obelisk and the Stardome Observatory.

One Tree Hill is so-called because when the Europeans arrived, there was a solitary totara tree at the summit of the hill, which was cut by the British and replaced with a Monterey pine. The tree was cut down for good in 2001 as it created unrest among the indigenous Maori, who believed that the non-native tree should not be atop the 'Maungakiekie'. An Obelisk at the top of the hill serves as a memorial for the Maori people. It also serves as the resting place for Sir John Logan Campbell, whose contributions to the region were substantial. There are two parks on the hill: the One Tree Hill Domain and the Cornwall Park. The Stardome Observatory is situated in the One Tree Hill Domain and is a popular attraction on the hill.
