Introduction

Devonport is located on a peninsula on the southeast coast of the North Shore area. It is a historic and charming seaside village, and also a wealthy area. It only takes 12 minutes to get there by boat from the city center. In Devonport, you can immerse yourself in beautiful beaches, unique boutiques, art galleries, and various Victorian buildings. Victoria Mount is one of the best viewing spots in Devonport, where you can overlook the magnificent views of Auckland city center and harbor. At the top of the mountain, you can also see the red exhaust port, which is a unique sight. In addition, the North Head is a very important seaside fortress managed by the Department of Conservation. It hides various military tunnels and artillery positions, most of which are open to the public. If you have some free time, you can enjoy an authentic Victorian afternoon tea at the Peace and Plenty Inn. However, not only is there delicious afternoon tea here, but there also is a series of Victorian hats for guests to choose from. You can wear them while tasting tea, which will surely be fun.
