Maungarei/Mt. Wellington, Auckland's second-youngest volcano, erupted around 10,000 years ago and has a height of 100 meters from base to tihi (summit). It has two large craters, with one still intact and the other filled with a water reservoir in 1960. Lava from vents at the base of the maunga filled the valley below and formed small swamps. These have now been drained and turned into parks.
To recognize the cultural, historic, and archaeological significance of the maunga, the summit road and tihi were permanently closed to private motor vehicles, including motorbikes and scooters, in December 2018.
