A 10 minute ferry ride from Auckland city centre takes you to Devonport, a quiet leafy seaside suburb peppered with art galleries and coffee shops.

We decided to make the trip one Sunday afternoon after reading about a short scenic walk in our guide book. As we had nothing else better to do that day we thought we would shake the cobwebs from our joints and have a look.

It was here that we scaled the immense heights of Mt. Victoria (sense the sarcasm) and took in the amazing 360degree views of Auckland, Auckland harbour, the Gulf Islands and also the Pacific. As you can see from the video and the pics it is no wonder why this place was used as a lookout point during the second world war.

Though the book stated that the walk would only take around an hour to complete and that it would be impossible to get lost due to its short circular route - we somehow managed to get lost and take near on two hours to complete.
