Headed here via Mt. Hobson which is also worth a visit and a lot quieter besides. Weather not great but a nice walk up via the sheep rather than the road through some picturesque scenery. Will have to head back on a nicer day. As the location is somewhat south of Mt. Eden the views you get are quite different, more of the west and south than the downtown area so both are worth the journey.
