We got the ferry across here and it was lovely. Wandered round and checked out the cute wee area it's really nice. Some great little eatery's and bars. We found one on a side street with a live 2 person band which was awesome. Great views of the city if your willing to walk up the hill.

I lucked out visiting this place on a beautifully sunny winter day. The journey on the ferry from the Ferry Terminal to the Devonport pier, gives a spectacular view of Auckland. The pier on the Devonport side was undergoing a renovation and many of the outlets and areas in front of the pier had been barricades because of the construction.... More

We caught the train from Pukekohe to Auckland, then the ferry over to Devonport.I had my international student with me, and she has never been on a ferry before and she really enjoyed the day. Taking photos from the sea of things that she had seen on the land a few days prior.

Lovely locality for a day trip out of Auckland via a 20 minute ferry ride. Enjoyed the Maritime Park for the history and views, also the exercise! Below is the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum, well worth a visit and also a cuppa. Mt Victoria Reserve for more exercise and views. There is a road to the summit if driving. Near... More

Nice trip to a suburb, take the ferry from Auckland waterfront then walk up the hill to see an old gun battery, you get some great views over Auckland and the surrounding area.

Worth a ferry ride and nice to walk around. good to also see the naval base. Some nice shops and places to eat. I love the little arcade with the pen shop and the guy with teh NZ antique prints.

We caught the ferry from Auckland CBD to Devonport. Expecting to take the children on a nice little trip. Something different from taking the car everywhere. We all totally enjoyed it. We all walked up Mt Victoria to soak up the beautiful views. Ate and visited shops in Devonport. Had an absolutely wonderful family day out.

Mystery and a little excitement. Exploring tunnels in the light is fine but some are unlit or dim adding to a heightened experience. The views are really good. Take a walk along the waterfront at the foot of the hill.

Only a 15 minute ferry ride from the Auckland harbour is the quant old town of Devonport. The town has maintained its Victorian history and the number of amazing places to eat was incredible. You feel far away from the hussle and bussle of the city. A mix of old and new shops, you can spend a very pleasant afternoon... More

We paid the price for the ferry, spent time walking around town looking for galleries or art stores, but only found many restaurants. We didn't spend much time there before returning to Auckland.
