Rangitoto Island is the largest and youngest volcanic cone in Auckland.
Due to its last eruption being around 550 years ago, this island is still very much in a rustic state. Black lumps of rock stand tall in scattered mounds, diverse birds chirp from its flourishing trees, scenic forestry stretches across most of its land and authentic lava caves weave throughout.
