Devonport is a seaside suburb of Auckland, located just over the bridge, directly opposite the CBD. Devonport offers visitors stunning views of the Auckland city skyline, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants.
Popular with both locals and visitors alike, Devonport can get very busy in the peak summer season – but it is worth it! I would recommend avoiding the traffic and opting for the ferry, which is a far more enjoyable way to travel.
On a recent trip to Devonport, visiting some friends, I visited Corellis Cafe and enjoyed a very good BLT followed by what is probably the best chocolate brownie I have ever tasted.
Devonport is a great walking town. So, after lunch, it is always worth taking a stroll either down the main street to explore the shops, or along the foreshore and take in the views. Or if you are after more of a workout, climbing Mt Victoria and take in the views from the lookout.
Devonport is the perfect escape from the city, without having to travel for hours. I will be visiting again and again!!
