Devonport, Auckland

4.6
#1 of 56 in Parks in Auckland
Just a short ferry ride from downtown Auckland, the seaside neighborhood of Devonport draws big crowds with its outstanding dining options and unbeatable views of the city's modern skyline. Often compared to California's Sausalito, this area exudes bohemian charm and offers plenty of little shops selling rare books and tourist trinkets. The best way to experience the vibrant quarter is to walk down its main streets, home to a collection of well-maintained Victorian villas and the first purpose-built movie theater in the Southern Hemisphere. Use the area as your base for sightseeing and day trips to nearby Mount Victoria, an 87 m (285 ft) volcano of undetermined age.

  • Although we didn't take the ferry or any tour to Devonport (we went in our rental car) I can say it was worth it only with the panoramic photos of Auckland that we got from here. If you plan to spend a few days in Auckland it may be worth spending more time and exploring the place more, but in our case, with limited time, we went on a hunt for good photos and got them.

  • In a catamaran, not more than 15 min from Auckland, you arrive in a beautiful city (neighbourhood?) of interior, quiet and peaceful, quiet traffic, friendly people, beautiful houses and shops in good English style. Walking along its streets gives us great pleasure, besides the possibility of shopping for beautiful souvenirs. Good restaurants. We rode a micro bus with a friendly neo-Zealander as a driver and traveled and stopped at various points of the city, ancient fortresses and hills where beautiful views are seen.
