“You dont have to go far...”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Devonport is one of those close-to-the-city suburbs that we take all new comers to see the view of auckland in a picturesque setting.
Its a quaint little suburb with very interesting houses, mounts with breath-taking views, rich in history and has loads of activities for everyone. There are nice little cafes- great food, and takeaway shops if you feel like having a picnic in the park or by the beach. We do love those long walks by the beach and dreaming about owning one of those victorian houses with a view.

Devonport is also a great place to get a vantage point of auckland city during new year's eve to see the fireworks and take great photos if you're into

“Village Life”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Just a short comfortable ferry ride across the Harbour from Downtown Auckland is the very relaxed
village life atmosphere of Devonport. Reminds us a lot of some English seaside places with the small shops and Cafés and the buildings along the seafront where the local residents live.
It is a favourite place to visit to get away from the madding crowd of the big city.

“Nice Town - Perhaps Better When Events Happen?”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Just a 12-minute ferry ride from Auckland makes this little Oceanside town very accessible. The seaside setting, with Auckland views, is quite lovely. The shops and restaurants near the ferry terminal, however, are limited in variety and number. Perhaps a bike-scooter-car rental would be a more varied way to explore Devonport... and perhaps there is more to see and do during special events (we went during winter months).
