Mount Victoria Reserve, Devonport
Categories: Nature & Parks
Head up to Mount Victoria Reserve for panoramic views of the Auckland skyline across Waitemata Harbour. Aside from the scenery, the park features a field of "painted mushrooms" that serve as decorative vents for an underground water pumping station. You can reach the reserve via a 10-20 minute uphill walk or by driving, biking, or riding a Segway. Parking at the top is limited. On your way up, stop in at the historical Signalman’s House, which used to inform locals of ship departures and arrivals. The access road also features numerous shops and cafes. Bring a jacket because it's often blustery at the top. Add Mount Victoria Reserve and other attractions to your Devonport trip itinerary using our Devonport vacation generator.

Great views of Auckland CBD and Rangitoto.
Great views of the city and waterfront. Looks even better at or after sunset on a clear evening. The gates close earlier in winter months
Easy walk with a beautiful view of the city
