“Great history in a beautiful spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Walked Mt Victoria for an incredible 360 degree view of Aukland and the islands in the harbours. North Head was so interesting with all the fortification used to protect the harbour from the Japanese threats from 1904 +. Great picnic spot up there!

Devonport is a great place to go to take a relaxing look around and to enjoy the history of Auckland. Lots of nice places to eat and enjoy this historic part of Auckland.

“Under construction”

Even though the roads at the waterfront are being repaired, the wonderful views and fabulous little restaurants and shops are open and provide great service and value for money

“A gret place to stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Visit on the ferry and enjoy the views of the skyline. Take a walk along the water to the Naval Maritime museum while you are in town and allow an extra hour to hour and a half. There are some great little coffee shops and a grassy park where you could eat a take out snack!

“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
