We took the ferry to devonport, such a nice way to travel. Took a hop on hop off tour, stopping first at the naval museum, which was very informative, also a very nice cafe for a coffee! Then back on the bus to have a look at the gun implacements from world war 1, and a tour round other parts... More

really enjoyed my day out here. Didn't really know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Great views of the city and interesting history to the area from the war times.

This was a lovely experience, especially as it was sunny and looking back over to Auckland was absolutely gorgeous. There are some great cafes to have some morning tea, lunch or aftternoon tea and then simply hop back onto the ferry to Auckland.

Busy vibrant area with many attractions and a terrific view of Auckland City from the top of Mt Victoria. Walk up if you are fit but you can drive up. Large number of restaurants, coffee shops and trendy shops all in a relatively compact area. One can park there and catch the the modern boats to the City or Waiheke... More

Lovely little village just a boats ride away from Auckland, completely different atmosphere from the hustle and bustle of Auckland CBD. Walked up Mount Victoria and looked across the water to the stunning sight of Auckland CBD and the Auckland Bridge.

We enjoyed our short ferry ride to Devonport and walking around the port area, including a very nice park where we saw several folks getting a Segway lesson prior to doing a Segway tour. Had a bite to eat, wandered through the shops and then boarded the ferry for our return to Auckland. This is an inexpensive way to get... More

If you want to be away from the crowds in Auckland and a ferry trip away this is the place. Many places to visit good restaurants and the view from Mt Victoria back to Auckland at sunset is wonderful

We thoroughly enjoyed our ferryride over to Devonport, and had a long gentle stroll around the town and to the beach on a lovely day. The highlight was when we turned up onto the main drag on our return and were 'kidnapped' by a lovely lady called Adrienne who took us up to see the view from Mount Victoria. She... More
