An easy 10 minute ferry ride from our hotel. We took the 1 hour bus tour and it drove us past the cutest homes (reminded me of SF) and wonderful views. I loved our day.

This was a very short ferry ride from the Auckland ferry terminal. Devonport is a really neat little village with good shopping
and restaurants

NZ$11 return boat trip from Auckland taking 10-15 mins. Nice views back to city. Worth a walk along the water front at Devonport. A 25 min walk to the coast on the opposite side of the peninsular takes you to Cheltenham beach which is quiet, pretty and seemed very safe to bath.
There are limited shops, some nice buildings and the 'war tunnels' to visit, although we ran out of time so cannot guide on these.

Devonport is just a 10 minute ferry ride from Auckland. There are a number of Art Deco properties, spoiled by present day advertising.
There is reputadbly the oldest cinema in the southern hemisphere in Devonport

Very easy to get to Devonport from Auckland's Ferry building. The ferrys run frequently and it is a short but enjoyable ride to Devonport. Once there you will find a central street which is right across from the terminal building and, on this street, an enjoyable variety of shops and restaurants.
