Seaside charm and quiet villa-lined streets makes Devonport a perfect summer afternoon ride. This shared path takes you from Devonport village to Torpedo Bay, along the Waitemata Harbour waterfront. The route along King Edward Parade is flat. Start at the Devonport ferry building (a 12 minute ferry ride from the city centre). Check out the architecturally acclaimed Devonport Library. There's a kids playground on the Devonport waterfront, and some great local options for an ice-cream or coffee stop. The village is home to a collection of cafes, art galleries, quaint shops and the Vic theatre. There are plenty of places to stop along the way. Check out the passing ferries and views of the beach, Auckland cityscape, Hauraki Gulf Islands and Maungauika (North Head). Admire the pōhutukawa trees planted along the waterfront to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII. You'll find a second, smaller children's playground towards the end of the path at Devonport Domain. The path ends at Torpedo Bay, where you can walk out to the end of the wharf to admire the view. Devonport has been a naval base since 1841. History buffs will enjoy the Navy Museum, which celebrates Devonport's rich local history and maritime roots. There are fantastic views to Maungauika (North Head), now a Department of Conservation reserve. Maungauika has a fascinating history first a Māori settlement, and then as a coastal fortification from 1870 to the end of WWII.Public toilets are available at various points along the route.
