Day 17 Bonus Activity (Mt Wellington)

I have been asked to take a photo of me standing beside a popular place in your community. I have chosen to take a photo of the Mt Wellington mountain. The mountain is in Mt Wellington and it's called Maungarei, my whole family goes there to do exercise. The mountain is actually a Volcano. When you get to the middle there is this little circular box that shows you what other famous mountains and places there are in Auckland like one tree hill, Waihiki Island, Rangitoto Island and the Panmure basin. Did you know the mountain is 444 ft above sea level and it is 162 meters high.


  1. Hi Jahzara,

    What a cool picture you've posted! I can see much of east Auckland spreading out behind you. It looks pretty amazing! Did you and your family walk all the way up to the top of the mountain? Was it difficult?

    Aronui (my son) and I sometimes go for fitness walks in our neighbourhood. We live out west and there are a number of trails in our area. We try to go for bush walks on the trails as often as we can. Aronui loves to pretend that we are adventurers who are off to discover new land. It's pretty fun going 'adventuring' with him, I must admit!

    I hope that you and your family enjoy your adventures up Mt Wellington together :)
