“A must on your travel list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We we're lucky to have a guide who took us around and explained what this place was, do yourself a favour and get a local to take you, if you can't, don't worry it is easy to see what it was used for, very interesting and the beauty is amazing

“Great View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

My husband and I had taken a harbour cruise and a free trip to Devenport was included. The walk up Mount Victoria was our highlight in Devenport. The views of the city were spectacular. If the weather is good, highly recommend a visit.

“Great viewing point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

Mt Victoria is a great dog walking area for locals, a good trek for visitors and rewards with an astounding view of Auckland city and the harbour. The home of the Michael King Writers Centre, the secret gem is the Folk Club located inside/under the hill whose presence is hinted at by the decorative red mushrooms whose purpose is ventilation of the hidden rooms. A good walk from the village on a nice day rewarded by great views.

“Nice half day trip in Devonport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

I won't describe how fantastic the view is from the top again. It is definitely worth visit on a fine day. You can either take the ferry from Auckland to Devonport or simply just drive there. Apart from the breathtaking view for grownups, there are tunnels and guns that attract little ones. After the visit to Mount Victoria, you can walk around the shops on the main Street Victoria Rd, visiting some of the art galleries, buying some handmade chocolate from Devonport chocolate shop, and then choose a nice cafe for a drink or some lunch.

It is a perfect half day trip with your friends, love one, or the whole family.
But if you have more time, you can add North Head for more walk and the navy museum in the afternoon. One of my favorite place in Auckland.

“Best View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Of Auckland's many lookout points, this was my favourite. Take the ferry to Devonport. Steep climb but worth it.
