About the path
An easy, flat stroll along the Waitematā Harbour in charming Devonport.
This short walk takes you from the Devonport Ferry Building to the Devonport Naval Base, home of the Royal New Zealand Navy. Devonport has a proud military history and has been a naval base since 1841.
This gentle walk is suitable for all ages and abilities. It's also a fun way to pass the time if you're waiting for the ferry.
Start at the ferry building and follow the waterfront path along Queens Parade. The route offers uninterrupted views of the Waitematā Harbour, Auckland city skyline and port. Admire the historic character homes which sit proudly on Queens Parade.
At the turnaround point at the Naval Base entry, you might catch a glimpse of the naval frigates.
On your return, stroll out to the end of Devonport Wharf to take in more great views and the harbour breeze.
If you're interested in military history, check out the Navy Museum which celebrates Devonport's maritime roots. To reach the museum, follow the flat Devonport to Torpedo Bay Path from the ferry building.
