Seems to be a prehistoric hill. English heritage should know that.

Sorry about the delay, it is 6am down here and I have been asleep.

That is indeed Rangitoto in the background but the answer is not One Tree Hill.

This is a photo of One Tree Hill taken from the hill we are looking for, which is also a volcanic cone.

Yes, it is Mt Eden, Auckland's most visited volcanic cone.

oops. I was too late. Mount Eden Domain. The pic was taken to the left of the tree in the foreground of the image below on Puhi Huai Rd.

Credit to Hans for finding the general area.

Hans guessed it a few minutes earlier, but that was a good effort in finding a photo of it.

Caught with my pants down while trying to ready the photo. That was a capture from Google Maps.

It would appear that the wording in that sign on the left reads:
"We make you break the ice"

Wharf cranes, various countries in Europe, looking for specific girder design, and then probably got lucky as there don’t appear to be many photos of this particular crane around.

I also found a night shot here:
