“Mount Victoria is lovely spot that provides great views of the Auckland Isthmus. There is a relief map at the top that will help you find key points around Auckland. A short drive to Devonport which is a lovely see-side settlement and has the nearby maritime museum. Of course, you can take the ferry across to Devonport from the city. ”

“Panoramic elevated views of Auckland and Waitemata Harbour. Awesome! Grab some fish and chips from Devonport Village and bring them up here. Oh, and mushroom-shaped air vents spring from the ground.”

“Staying with me? Guests have the Devonport ferry included in their stay. Just use your included ATHOP card to tag on and tag off like a local. Jump aboard a Devonport ferry, and take a walk to North Head for stunning views of Auckland, wander through old war tunnels, and sit on a Big Gun (For a shorter walk see Mt Victoria in Devonport).”
