“Devonport on Christmas day where else would you want to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The beach just down from the lookout mount at low tide provides a fantastic beach so close to the city and a walk away from the small but busy main high street. Excellent cafes, restaurants and small individual multi cutural shops, also a good stop off before jumping on the ferry and spending time in Auckland City. Everyone is so friendly sticks in my mind.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you visit Auckland it's well worth going to to Devonport on the regular ferry service to spend a few hours or more in this great harborside community. Many interesting shops and places to eat and it's pleasant walk along the waterfront admiring the houses and views over the water.

“Segway Tour - Magic Broomstick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

You must do a tour with the great staff at Magic Broomstick on Devonport wharf it is just magic. They are not that hard to ride and such a cool way to see the area even if you are a local it is a novel way to do a group activity. The staff know everything about the area and can give you a real good fun filled time.

“Spend some time here - even a couple of hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

An $11 ferry ride gets you to Devonport which is very Victorian looking. Great place to have a beer, hire a bike or just stroll around. Worth seeing.
