“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

The ferry trip from Auckland took us to Devenport and was worth it
If we had known we would have stayed here and taken the ferry over to Auckland rather then the other way round
The views were amazing and the town very quant

“lovely village and a nice ferry ride to get there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Devonport is a lovely village and it is a nice short ferry crossing from Auckland, lovely shops (many art galleries) and cates.
It is lovely to look back at the city and see the harbour and the boats

“Really awesome location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Nothing beats Devonport on a lovely summers day. The beach is awesome and the walk to Mt,\. Victoria has breathtaking views. A must do if you are in Auckland.

“Charming village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Laid back, attractive seaside village with good cafes and food places, and a very good secondhand bookship. Easy to reach for tourists without cars - an easy ferry ride from the centre of downtown Auckland.

“Day trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Things are quiet in Devonport in winter. Lots of places are closed for weeks at a time. This can be a good thing though. Less crowded for sure. Not hard to see it abuzz with people in the warmer months.

A visit to the North Head military emplacements was very interesting. Kids would love it (exploring tunnels, caves, and underground stores).
