What a great hike up thru Devonport to fantastic views. I don't know when I have seen such clear skies and lovely views. It is a hike (or a drive) but well worth it. Bring a camera!

The walk up was a nice hike (not overly challenging for distance or ability; you can also drive. The views are lovely and extensive, with some nice benches for relaxing. There is some WWI history, with explanatory plaques. It is worth the time.

Long 360 degree views on a clear day. Land + Sea + City. See how straight Lake Road is! Slide down hill on cardboard or take a pick-nick.

Had a few spare hours on a business trip to Auckland so caught the ferry across to Devonport and took a bus ride up to Mt Victoria. Interesting history of the Disappearing Gun and terrific views in all directions. Plenty of attractive shops and restaurants in Devonport near the ferry terminal. A very enjoyable experience and well worth the trip.

This is such a great spot to take the family or go on your own. Walk to the top with a picnic and take in the sights of Auckland on one side and the gulf on the other. Great spot. It's one of my top spots in my latest blog: http://www.pilgrimwithaplan.com/have-a-love-affair-with-auckland/

We were blown away by the 360 degree views. An amazing sunset capped off the day. Such a wonderful way to see exactly where you are.
