The maunga is the site of ancient volcanic activity that produced a tuff ring, scoria cone, and lava flows that shaped the local landscape. Lava caves can still be found within the flows from Ōwairaka.
To recognize its cultural, historic, and archaeological significance, the tihi and summit road at Ōwairaka / Te Ahi-kā-a-Rakataura / Mt Albert has been permanently closed to private motor vehicles since 2019.
