This was once, out top place to drive up, with visitors from all over the world, to see the view. This never happens now, because of the silly rule stopping cars. When walking is not possible, this is a memory view only.

In general I am so in love with Devonport, such beautiful area with the spirit of the old days, and mount Victoria offers a fantastic amazing view of Auckland, sky tower,etc. Also a lot of historical things to see from WW. Definitely worth the check.

A sweet little town away from the hustle of CBD. It was easy to get to via the ferry from Auckland Central. Cheaper to get AT HOP card than to pay more using cash over the ticket booth. short walk from the pier, approx 30mins....More
