Devonport, Auckland

4.6
#1 of 52 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.

    A christmas trip to the north island of NZ and a side trip to Devonport while staying at Auckland. I love Auckland and if you want to truly view the harbour in all its glory, head over to Devonport.  more »

    A nice way to spend half a day if a tourist,ferries run frequently and it is just a short trip. Nice old buildings and eateries.  more »

    Devenport is one of the first places we take visitors - the village is quaint with great coffee shops and eating places and a trip up mount Victoria is a must to get 360 degree views of Auckland  more »
