Mount Victoria Reserve, Devonport

4.6
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Devonport
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Devonport trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • The best views of Auckland. Accessible by foot and by car (very limited parking) and breezy most of the time. Very popular with locals and tourists alike. Views of Rangatoto.  more »
  • From the Devonport ferry terminal to Victoria Road walk, climb to the Hill is the Summit of Mount Victoria. Summit area are the rolling grasslands and, you can enjoy the wonderful vistas and from there across the Waitemata Harbour Auckland city.

  • Mount Victoria is certainly the highlight of any trip to Devonport. A pleasant hike from the ferry terminal is enjoyable. The view from the summit is a magnificent panorama of Auckland.  more »

  • Beautiful place to see the Auckland harbour and the city. Must get to see the sunset and explore the fort. Children friendly. You will love the picture perfect views.
  • Beautiful views across the harbour. Easy parking but very little shade. Good quick stop for the view only.
  • Very easy to climb to the peak. Excellent view provided with good weather. Easily accessible by cars as well.
  • A great place to take your grandchildren in the holidays. Wonderful views.
  • Yep, great view of Auckland center and what's around. Worth it. Quite windy at the time we were there.
