It reminded me Greenwich mountain and London view. Except there you have some things to do, once you get on top. Here it is a viewing point and some steel mushrooms. That is about it. If you have time, choose going to Waiheke instead and...More

A short ferry ride from Auckland brings you to Devonport where you will find interesting shops, galleries and cafes. Walk uphill to see the best of the views.

Great place to visit and have a general look around. There is a bit to see and do over in Devonport. We chose to do a tour on the island so we got to see all the highlights. Well worth it!

A fantastic tour that takes a little over half a day showing you around the city and to visit the seaside village of Devonport. You get a full guided tour of the Devonport Peninsula, whilst seeing the art-deco architecture of the whole village and stop...More
