Escape the bustle of Auckland in nearby Devonport, a historic waterfront village that exudes charm and celebrates its slower pace of life.


Enjoy a scenic ride toward the lovely suburb of Devonport, which lies across the bay just north of Auckland. As an introduction to the historic village, you'll see it from two different, elevated perspectives: from the volcanic cone of Mount Victoria and also from North Head, another volcanically formed mountain.


Devonport is known for its easy pace and distinct historic character, as you'll soon discover upon arriving in its compact downtown. Driving about, you'll notice the many restored colonial villas from the late 1880s and early 1900s, most of which were built with timber from the native kauri tree. Devonport's waterfront is lined with stately houses and a prevalence of antique stores, inviting cafes and unusual boutiques, which lend the village its unmistakable charm.


After your orientation guided tour, you will have approximately 1-hour of free time to further explore on your own before returning to the pier in Auckland via public ferry. You may also elect to remain in Devonport and return by ferry (ferry tickets included) at your leisure.


Need to Know:

Note: Guests staying in Devonport at the conclusion of the tour must be aware of ferry schedule and allow sufficient time for the return. Amount of walking, level of exertion and expenses during free time are at guests’ discretion.
