Things to Do
No visit to Devonport is complete without experiencing all that this village by the sea has to offer. Take time to experience the truly spectacular city and harbour views from the summits of Mt Victoria (Takarunga) and North Head (Takapuna), both of which were Maori Pa sites (fortified villages) and are both still fortresses of sorts today, with the Navy maintaining a presence. Both have gun embankments, bunkers and North Head is riddled with tunnels, many of which are accessible to the public and all dating back to the end of the 19th century.
Perhaps a more relaxed pace is more to your liking. Devonport is blessed with five beautiful white sand beaches all within walking distance from Mainstreet. So whether it's relaxing under the striking red flowers of the pohutukawa trees framing Devonport beach, swimming at Torpedo Bay or Cheltenham beach or eating an ice cream at Narrow Neck beach, you're bound to find your perfect spot in the sand.
To get a taste of the real Devonport, you're best to take a wander around the local streets, discovering the many heritage buildings and grand 19th century villas that contribute to Devonport's unique charm and character.
Most of Devonport can be explored on foot or perhaps you could hire a bicycle or take a fun Segway Tour by Magic Broomstick Tours. Alternatively Devonport Tours operates organized mini bus tours departing from the ferry building.
Devonport has always attracted a wide and diverse range of artists, writers, poets and craftspeople that live work and display their wares here. The numerous galleries - displaying oils and watercolours, glass art, ceramics and just about every media imaginable - combine with studios open to public viewing, bespoke jewellery manufacturers and a quirky craft market, to cement Devonport's place as Urban Arts Village and Arts centre of Auckland.
