“A delightful village across the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

Devonport is a 15 minute ferry ride across from the City (free return if you have been on a harbour cruise). It is a delightful place with upmarket shops and lots of cafes. A walk (steep but short) up to Mount Victoria provides a magnificent 360 degree view of the whole of the area and the islands. Another must is the Naval Museum which also has a super cafe serving lots of delicious things. A great day out.

“Cool atmosphere but tourist prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Devonport is an amazing place to visit. It's got a great seaside village culture and is fun and vibrant but if you are going to eat or drink here be prepared to pay tourist prices. Devonport is a destination so be aware of that before you go and don't expect the same prices as you might get in other, more suburban, parts of Auckland.

“Village atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Great place to visit if you are in Auckland. Easy 15 minute ferry ride to step back in time in a great little village. Nice cafes, cute shops and a lovely waterfront park complete the picture.

“A Day's Outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Devonport is always a great place to spend the day. Plenty of cafes to choose from and if you feel like hoping over to the city and visiting the Viaduct or do some shopping it is just a 15 minute boat trip across our beautiful harbour. You can park your car for 3 hours or if you get down early enough all day parking at no cost.

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Catch the ferry over and walk up the hill - nice views and some nice cafes and galleries when you return - I am sure there is amore to do here but this is a good way to spend a few hours at an easy pace and a different view of the city
