We were there for the sunset and the view is just Great and spectacular. Looking over the whole Auckland city. There's no public retreat on top of the mount Victoria.

In my opinion the views are better than the slightly higher hill within Cornwall Park nearer the city centre. Mount Victoria is situated just above the town of Devonport and the entrance drive is quite difficult to find. The road winds up the hill and narrow in places, especially near the top. People do walk up but it's far easier... More

We took the ferry to Devonport. It is a steep walk to the top. You can walk the pave road to the top or as we did one of the many pathways to the top. The view is breathtaking of the area. It is worth the visit. Get your walking shoes on!

An absolute Icon of the North Shore. All encompassing 360 degree views with a gun emplacement and disappearing gun therein. Take a trip up there soon before it gets given back to Maori and closed to vehicles. Walkable road but steep and narrow. Just drive up quietly. Have been waiting for a clear day and today was it. Took dozens... More

Complete your visit to Devonport by climbing the hill of Mount Victoria which will give a 360 degree view of the city.

Fab day trip to Davenport from Auckland. Walked up Mount Victoria, which was a little demanding, but short and sweet. The views from the top were worth it. It was a clear day and you could see for miles. Very peaceful, we sat for hours with a picnic just watching the world go by

It's a steep climb, but worth every breathless step. Gorgeous view of all of the city and many of the islands.

Love going there for a little walk and relax at the top of the Mount enjoying the view on Rangitoto and the City. I think I prefer it to the Mount Eden view, it's wilder and more breathtaking. Always take friends and relatives visiting from overseas to have a classic "mushroom" picture taken :)

If it isnt too murky it offers great views across to Auckland and the bays. THe walk will get you moderately breathless if you are in decent fitness so not too challenging. Worth the effort.
