Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Auckland Region / North Shore / Devonport / Mount Victoria Reserve
Head up to Mount Victoria Reserve for panoramic views of the Auckland skyline across Waitemata Harbour. Aside from the scenery, the park features a field of "painted mushrooms" that serve as decorative vents for an underground water pumping station. You can reach the reserve via a 10-20 minute uphill walk or by driving, biking, or riding a Segway. Parking at the top is limited. On your way up, stop in at the historical Signalman’s House, which used to inform locals of ship departures and arrivals. The access road also features numerous shops and cafes. Bring a jacket because it's often blustery at the top. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Devonport trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Beautiful view of the city and the surrounding islands. Access by cars if people don't fancy climbing the hill by foot. It doesn't take too long to climb by foot though. No toilets or water station (or I didn't See!) so better be organise before going up the volcano. Also there are vestiges of the past - canon and stones statue. The view is worth the effort!
It is a nice 10-15 minute walk up a fairly steep hillside or if you are driving there is a small parking area. At the summit you are rewarded with sweeping views of Auckland Harbor and skyline on one side and volcanoes across the bay on the other. The famously engineered "disappearing gun" is located here.
