An Auckland resident who spent the summer in Devonport recommended that we escape the city on Sunday afternoon and take a boat to this beautiful seaside town. There are many Victorian buildings here, full of lush green areas, which makes people feel relaxed. There are several boats parked in the port, and the scenery is very beautiful throughout the afternoon, like a postcard scenery. The historic hotel The Esplanade is right next to the pier, offering delicious lunches and luxurious interiors. I'll be here soon by boat. (Everyone) I will definitely have a great time in Devonport.
You can take a 12-minute ferry ride from the Ferry Building to Devonport on the opposite shore (15NZD/person round trip). The streets and lanes of Devonport, known as the rich man’s island, are all small Victorian houses. A cup of coffee sits on the beach. The sea breeze is so comfortable. The best experience must be to climb Mount Victor in 15 minutes. This is the best place to see Auckland city centre and Rangitoto Island from a distance!
The advantage of Devonport Hotel is that it is very convenient to get here from Auckland City by ferry, which only takes 15 minutes. As an Aucklander, I often go to the hotel, but yesterday I took a different route to explore. I got on the ferry to Bayswater, through the beautiful seaside suburbs, through streets and parks, and finally to Devonport. There are many things to choose from here. First of all, there are many cafes to choose from on the waterfront, main avenue and surrounding streets. And there are many kinds. If you are adventurous, you can walk to the top of Mount Victoria, which is narrow and steep, but you can enjoy beautiful views of the bay and the surrounding city. And there are many trails to walk along the mountain. If you are a bit adventurous, you can walk to North Head for about 15 minutes to explore this marvelous reserve, where there are ancient naval relics and even more beautiful bay and port scenery. You can also go to the beautiful Vic Theatre to watch a movie-you can get a special ticket and preferential ferry prices. Or sit on the beach and have a picnic. There are many options. Devonport provides many services for locals and tourists.
The first stop in New Zealand came to Devonport. Unfortunately, it has been raining and there are not many people on the street shops. Oakland postcards are not as good-looking as Queenstown. It is recommended to buy them in Queenstown. Refrigerator magnets are expensive, but buy one as a souvenir. The clerk in some stores can speak Chinese, and when I passed by a coffee shop, I bought an ice cream, which was super unpalatable and expensive, and the one bought at Mission Bay in the back was almost one world at a time. Pedestrians on the road are walking dogs and running, wearing shorts for more than ten degrees, and the children are barefoot. The physique is really different from ours.
This is a rich local area. If you come here to eat or something, the consumption is definitely not cheap, but if you just look at the scenery here, it is also worth a visit. The scenery is very beautiful and there are more cultural landscapes.
Best place to have a great shot of city of sails from other side of the heaven. Lots of restaurants to hang out and great place to spent your day off.
A lovely part of the city to see. Walked up the north head with the cannons, my boys loved it, check out the Navy Museum too and the cafe was lovely.
just visited friends and family ,had lunch with them and enjoyed company and weather outside nice fine day
Devonport is only 12 minutes by ferry from Downtown Auckland. It's a good place for shopping and dining, it's always had laid-back feel, with a touch of counter-culture. European settlement dates from...
Devonport is a relaxed bayside village with upscale cafes and seafood restaurants. There are small boutiques. It is full of charm and character.
