Event details

Maungarei/Mt Wellington is the second youngest volcano among the 53 volcanoes of the Auckland Volcanic Field. It is one of the most prominent scoria cones in the city with panoramic views over east Auckland.

Geologist and author Bruce Hayward will lead a 3km walk around and over the cone and along part of the Stonefields Heritage Walk seeking out the secrets in the rock exposures and landforms that tell the stories of the volcano's eruption 10,000 years ago.

Presented by: Auckland Geology Club
