“Relaxing daytrip from Auckland”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

This little town is only a 12 minute ferry ride away from downtown Auckland but is charming, with lots of victorian houses, cafes, naval history and great vistas of downtown Auckland. A great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Auckland.

“Great day trip”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

I love visiting Devonport - especially taking the ferry from downtown and strolling up through the village.Great little shops and cafes. North head is also great to visit but not if you've arrived on foot from the ferry.

“A short ferry back to the city”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

A great place to stay and visit if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A short ferry ride back to the viaduct where you can take buses to where you need to go.
Great if you have kids as it is much slower paced, parks, safe beaches. Not a lot of accommodation so best to hire a house or stay in B and B style accommodation.
