Took the ferry over from Auckland which cost $12 return for an adult and takes about 10 minutes. The walk up along Kerr Road took us about 30 minutes to get to the top. The views are just great and there is a large gun...More

A simple and free activity that you can do while you are in Devonport. The summit offers a couple of benches in different areas which give you stunning views. It is a perfect place to do your morning exercise, meditation or just killing your spare...More

It's an easy walk up the hill and it's well worth it. There are some great views up here and it is interesting to see the remnants of the gun placement here. Take a few minutes and read some of the placards that tell about...More

Worth visiting this reserve/outlook if you are visiting Auckland especially Devonport. If the weather is good you get good view of Auckland City and surrounding neighborhoods. TIP- Grab yourself a good coffee from Chiasso Coffee Company in 20 Wynyard Street and sandwich /pastry from Stone...More

It is a little bit of a precarious walk as the road is used by cars and bikes as well as pedestrians. There is no sidewalk. But the views from the top are stunning, so it is worth the effort to get there.

About 10 minutes walk from the ferry terminal, another 10 to 15 minutes slow walk up to the top. Amazing panorama, and it was fun trying not to get blown about by the strong winds. Definitely worth a visit!

If you are to visit just one lookout in Auckland, it should be Mt Victoria. Most postcard photos of Auckland harbour are taken from this viewpoint. Excellent views of Rangitoto as well. It is walkable from the ferry terminal. Grab some fish and chips, meat...More

Only a short distance inland form the ferry terminal is the road or path circling to the top. At the first car park it is worth avoiding the road turning to the right but to take the grassy path heading ahead. It will take you...More
