Mount Victoria Reserve, Devonport

#1 of 8 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.

  • If you are already in Devonport, take the time to hike up to the top of Mount Victoria. The views are gorgeous.  more »
  • For a wide view of Auckland city and North Shore it is worth the walk up the mountain, good photo opportunity too.  more »
  • The road up is pretty style but also offers a nice view. On the top of the Hill stands an old shaken dome which used a gun in has stood to protect the entrance to the port.
