Devonport is a rather overgrown fishing village on the north side of the harbour, only a short ferry ride from the city centre. Devonport is on of the earliest European settlements and this is reflected in some of its grand Victorian and Edwardian buildings. A 15 minute ferry ride will get you to Devonport and when you disembark here you will find on the jetty souvenir shops and little art galleries, setting the tone for this visit. Ashore, the pattern continues, with restaurants and cafés contributing to the impression that this is a place where visitors are expected. The village is dominated by the twin cones of Mount Victoria and North Head, both dormant volcanoes.

Mount Victoria
Stunning 360 degree views of Auckland greet you from the top of Mount Victoria. This mountain looms over Devonport and you can walk up the steep grassy hill or drive up a winding road.

Navy Museum

North Head
This is Devonport's other volcanic mountain and is worth exploring as it is full of old tunnels that were constructed out of the fear of a Russian invasion at the end of the 19th century. You can access the mountain by car or foot.
