I came up here to check out the sunset and it was magnificent. Although it was drizzling when I was there, it didn't affect the views much (although it was a bit cold). Really enjoy it.

Fab day trip to Davenport from Auckland. Walked up Mount Victoria, which was a little demanding, but short and sweet. The views from the top were worth it. It was a clear day and you could see for miles. Very peaceful, we sat for hours...More

It's a steep climb, but worth every breathless step. Gorgeous view of all of the city and many of the islands.
