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.  Daily ferries run  to downtown, Auckland City, which takes 10 minutes.

Last week I visited a friend of mine who lives in Devonport.  We went for a short walk and both took photos of  these lovely two storey 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
