Devonport (New Zealand)

Devonport is a seaside suburb on the North Shore of Auckland in New Zealand, directly across the harbour from central Auckland. This article also covers Bayswater.


Devonport was one of the earliest settled parts of Auckland. Originally a farming and shipbuilding area, subdivisions in the 1880s resulted in the large wooden villas being built which are very much part of the modern-day charm. It is the location of New Zealand's naval base and the Navy Museum.

Get in

By road

Head north across the harbour bridge on the motorway. Take the Northcote off-ramp. Turn right, cross the motorway and follow the signs. Devonport is the next ward to the south of Takapuna. It states to get off at Northcote - if coming from Auckland City the "Esmonde Road" offramp is the one to take.

By ferry

Take the 10-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland.
