Mount Victoria Reserve, Devonport
(4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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 view to Auckland city and out to Rangitoto Island. Over the harbour bridge out to the west of the city. Very narrow steep road to the top and limited parking. Watch out for the fitness fanatics ...  more »
  • I stopped by at the Devonport excursions. 1's distance from the ferry terminal. It is about 5 km. I would wear a little earlier, but it took me about 30 minutes so we climb on the wrong road and detour. It is like climbing mountains and even mountains, not like a hill. See the 360 degrees around and climb to the top is good. No particular facilities, such as kiosks, so quiet and Nice.

  • It's all in the title. After a small Ferry for $ 12 round trip you arrive in Devonport. He must walk about 20 minutes to reach the top of Mount Victoria and there is more than just to admire the Bay of Auckland and its skyline. It's worth the detour.

  • 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.
