当奥克兰作为城市刚刚建立时,独树山在接近山顶的地方长着一棵树。因此这座山被叫做独树山。不过这棵独苗在1852年被一个白人青年因一时之气而砍掉了。如今独树山的山顶矗立着苏格兰人约翰·罗根·坎贝尔爵士的纪念碑。他同另一位苏格兰人威廉·布朗,最早在新西兰定居的欧洲人。这座纪念碑表达着他对毛利人的景仰。

 独树山是奥克兰最大的死火山之一,也曾是新西兰最大的毛利要塞之一。这里有三个要塞遗址,火山锥上到处都可以发现梯田和地窖。如今,这里拥有林间空地、野餐区、步行道和牛羊遍布的牧场;公园则为都市人提供了优美的乡村体验。
旅行者说:2000年,独树山的松树已经被铲除,虽然现在你看不到这棵传奇的松树,但你可以聆听U2乐队的同名歌曲“One Tree Hill”,来缅怀一下它的故事。

Every other year I buy a membership because my child and her cousin love to go. When we heard that the Space Shuttle Enterprise was coming to town we were excited even though it never went to space. Long story short, you don't get to go inside the shuttle. There is very little interactive displays. My sister went to see the one in Washington DC, she read more went inside and it was free.

The rest of the museum is as fantastic as ever. The family still enjoys it.
