Head out during regular work hours and you'll have the whole place to yourself. Go on the weekend and it's PACKED!

If you have some hours left in Auckland it's a good plan to take the ferry and go to Devonport. It's a really beautiful area and going up Mount Victoria will give you really nice views of Auckland and the bay.

A short hike up to the summit.Fantastic landscape of Devonport, the North Shore and Auckland City. We have seen many kids having so much fun slide down the hill on cardboard.

There is an energetic climb up to the top of this extinct volcanic cone, regarded by panoramic views of Auckland city and the Waitemata harbour. Only a short walk from the ferry and a good way to spend an hour or so of a day excursion to Devonport.

With the best views of Auckland it is worth the effort to walk up here, 360 degree panoramic views on a sunny day is simply spectacular

Great view back over to Auckland especially at sunset. It gives you a different view of Auckland and the harbour from a high point

Love the view. Best time to go around 4pm to catch the sunset, anytime later its plain dull sky. Its quite a hike up, so it's good if you drive.

For an awesome all round view of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf, head up the mount as a must do whilst in Devenport. Gun emplacements good for quick visit and you can visit their cousins on Waiheke afterwards (but no actual guns are in place on the island)
