Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a fantastic area for a walk, with stunning views of the islands. Even if you are not interested in the history if this place, its a great picnic spot.

Good histrionic batteries, well preserved. Great view on the mountain, you can overlook the sea and the beach, and enjoy the skyline of CBD on the other side.

We parked at the upper car park then headed towards the South Battery. There is a map of the hill and you can go in any direction. As one local out walking his dog said ‘you can’t get lost’! The path is mowed grass and follows the hill around in a circle. Lots of stops at old war installations, beautiful views of Devonport, Mt Victoria and the Auckland skyline. I was surprised we spent 2 hours here! Such a nice break from the city.

Spectacular views over Auckland and th surrounding waters, together with panels explaining the history of the military installations on North Head. Worth a visit as part of a trip to Devonport, which is a gem itself.

We always come here. An easy day, picnic with a view, play in the low tide water, explore the history and slide down the slopes. Blimen windy on a winter day but fun for all.

It is really all about the views. You have a good look down on the port of Devonport, the beach at Cheltenham, across to Rangitoto island, and South to the city of Auckland. There are some historic items from the naval battery and the walk up is not too hard. You can drive a car up to the top, which you cannot do from Mt Victoria. There are interesting old houses nearby, so I think walking is best

Went there after 10 years and it was as if time had stood still. The same beautiful views, easy walks and a great place for a picnic with the family. Lots of history in the museum and a great place for the kids to run around. Beautifully kept grounds.

North Head is a lovely place to wander around. You can look at the Gun Placements and the magnificent views of Auckland. If you are lucky you may meet Daisy, the resident feline of North Head. Well worth taking a picnic.

The walk was incredibly beautiful. The park was very easy to find and offered a great view of Auckland. Quiet and peaceful. Great place for families and kids. Near to shops and great eats. The New World grocery store is huge there and offers many great selections. The shop nearby have the best prices that I have ever seen all over New Zealand. I shop in Auckland and Bay if Islands. Devonport had the best deals for the exact same thing.

Tourist should grab a HOP card from the grocery stores, load it up as you go. If you don’t use your balance within 60 days, they put the money back on the card that you used to purchase the travel credits. It works on bus, trains and ferries. You will save a fortune.

Trust me, I’m a local.
