Time Stands Still in Devonport, Auckland

Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand

Devonport is a harbour-side suburb of Auckland, and one of the earliest settled areas in New Zealand.  Fullers ferries run from Downtown, Auckland City, which takes 10 minutes.

There are quite a few cafes and bars and if you walk to the end of the main street you can walk up North Head which has amazing view of Waitemata Harbour and Auckland City.

I often visit a friend of mine who lives in Devonport and always enjoy a walk admiring these lovely Victorian Villa’s.  Built from the 1880’s to World War I, with Kauri wood and tin roofs.

Most villa’s have a balcony/verdanda and are usually decorated with intricate lace work and finials.

    I always envy countries that can well preserve their old building. It actually is easier to do in more temperate countries than here in the hot tropics. If i can visit NZ again i will make sure to see Devonport. Thanks
