One Tree Hill, Auckland NZ

One Tree Hill in Auckland, New Zealand provides some great views of the city and the surrounding bays and countryside. On the summit of the hill is the grave of Sir John Logan Campbell (1817-1912) surmounted by an obelisk (he was a famous NZ politician and businessman). He bequeathed £5000 for the obelisk which serves as a monument to the Māori people of New Zealand.
