Devonport is located on Auckland's North Shore. This seaside suburb is only 12 minutes from the Auckland CBD. It's well-known for its laid-back lifestyle, and the numerous harbourside bars and restaurants, Devonport was one of the first neighbourhoods settled in the Auckland area, and it's well-known for its heritage charm, Devonport is said to resemble the Californian city of Sausalito. Devonport is the main base for the Royal New Zealand Navy.

It's only 12 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland to Devonport, but it's like another country. The sand is golden and the people are friendly, Devonport was an early settlement, these days it's a holiday destination. It's also a base for the New Zealand Navy.

Devonport is a laid-back seaside suburb of Auckland, only 12 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland. It's an inviting place, with clean white beaches. The people are friendly, it's a good place to enjoy some time walking around. Devonport was settled by Europeans in the 1800s, but Maoris were there before. Dedvonport is best known as a base for the New Zealand Navy.

We had the pleasure of taking our two grand daughters on the ferry from Auckland to Devonport, and spent several hours roaming the shops and beaches, enjoying gelato, second hand books, & a picnic lunch. We saw Devonport through their eyes and the day was great.

Devonport is a seaside suburb of Auckland; it has nice beaches. Best way to get there is by ferry; it takes 12 minutes from downtown Auckland. Devonport is also a base for the Royal New Zealand Navy. Devonport is a great place for a day trip, we took a picnic lunch and had it on the beach. We also met a helpful bus-driver, who gave us some pointers about getting around.

Recently I had a lovely lazy Friday lunch in this neat suburb. Can’t recall where we ate but it was on the Main Street and all the cafes and restaurants look great

Picturesque village just a 10 minute ferry ride from Auckland. Explored the village and walked along the shoreline. We were really lucky to get a superb view of Emirates Team NZ and the UK boats heading back to the basin after practicing on the water.
Really nice vibe.
