From quirky shops to great cafes, lovely walks along the beaches or up one of the three volcanic cones including gun implacements and tunnels on Northhead Devonport is a great spot, especially if you catch the ferry to get there.

The owners of our B&B Nautical Nook in Auckland mentioned the best views over Auckland are from Mt Victoria, not far from Devonport. They were correct. We took the ferry to Devonport, walked up Mt Victoria for the views, then explored some of the historic Devonport. Lunch overlooking Auckland harbour with its sailing boats was very relaxing.

Devonport is a great wee village with lots of interesting places within easy walking distance. It has a great selection of shops, and is easy to get to by ferry from Auckland City. Lots of Cafes and Restaurants too, and even a cool old cinema that shows great flicks with a cool retro feel and warm community hospitality

The village at Devonport came highly recommended to us. While we enjoyed the ferry ride over and enjoyed walking around in a quaint little village. It was really nothing spectacular and our time could have been used elsewhere. If you lived in Auckland, NZ, this would be a great location for a day trip for a group of ladies to shop and have a bite. But it held nothing of interest to our husbands even though it has a nice little beach area.

An easy 10 minute ferry ride from our hotel. We took the 1 hour bus tour and it drove us past the cutest homes (reminded me of SF) and wonderful views. I loved our day.
