Mount Victoria Reserve, Devonport

(260+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.

  • I came up here to check out the sunset and it was magnificent. Although it was drizzling when I was there, it didn't affect the views much (although it was a bit cold). Really enjoy it.  more »
  • We were there for the sunset and the view is just Great and spectacular. Looking over the whole Auckland city. There's no public retreat on top of the mount Victoria.  more »

  • Google maps you are only telling the 2nd part of this maunga/mountain story. Shame on you. Ko Takarunga te maunga
  • Great view! You could the costal line along with the other side CBD
  • I am a local from Devonport and this place is a casual, senic hill great for summer walks and picnics. A popular activitie is sliding down the slopes atop a peice of scrap cardboard (you will often find cardboard peices left on the slopes).
  • Best place to go in Devonport. Only need 15 minutes walk from port to mountain top. The scene is awwwwwwesome and amazing beautiful.
  • Must visit place in davenport. We can see everything from here. Pick a sunny day
