Took a Ferry ride over to Devonport and was disappointed really. There was hardly anyone around for a Monday afternoon, most places were closed and the place seemed pretty dead. Went up to Mt Victoria which has views all around Auckland, it was very cloudy...More

Maybe we just chose the wrong day but Devonport was so quiet and without any atmosphere on the Monday we visited in September. It’s a short 15 minute ferry ride from the city and so probably worth a trip on a nice sunny day. We...More
