Great little place with wonderful little shops and cafés. Also worth a visit is the navy museum. A short ferry ride from the CBD -it shouldn't be missed

Hop on the ferry and a little bus will meet you to take you for a couple of hours around this lovely island with beautiful houses, fascinating history and wonderful scenery all around. A former military post it is now an understandably desirable location to live in - Tim Finn and the like have made it so.

Had time to spare on a sunny day so took ferry across and strolled the town, had coffee, tried supermarket and other shops then ferry back and really enjoyed the visit.

Catch the ferry from Britomart - take the walk up to North Head and complete with lunch at Devonport. Wonderful perspective of the harbour and the city.

Historical little town... the N.Z. Navy is based there... lots of World War 11 history... guns on display etc... you can walk and see the view over the Hauraki Gulf... well worth the visit... cafes are abundant... pick a sunny, fine day... catch the ferry back to Auckland ...

A good place to visit for a day trip. Nice cafes and good views of downtown Auckland from the hill overlooking the town. A few nice beaches are future north with good views of Rangitoto island.

A pleasant place to visit, would recommend a trip later in the day to get a fantastic view of the sunset over Auckland City Centre, the other side of the bay. Great pub in the centre of Devenport with good food and beer.
