Pauline from Segway Tours at the Ferry Terminal is an amazing guide. The Mt Victoria tour is fun, informative, and straight out cool 😎. Highly recommend.

Love this place, one of the classic spots I use to visit when I was growing up, so neat to be there again, just a shame you can't drive to the top.

As part of the Devonport Explorer bus, we stopped here to take in the views and photos. The driver explained the history of the site.
It can also be accessed via foot from the ferry port.

Found it a pleasant and not too taxing walk to the top to show fabulous views of our city to American friends. Well worth it.

This is described as a 10/20 minute walk - but it is hard on your legs as the first part is very very steep. Worth attempting it, however, as even if you don't make it to the top, every few yards produces a better view. Try it, whatever your age (says a 70 and 68 year old couple).

We visited Mount Victoria towards the end of our trip to New Zealand following a recommendation from some friends, it was well worth a visit, in fact we visited twice in one day, as we decided it was the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Cars are not permitted to drive to the top however if you have a mobility permit for your car you can contact the local council office for an access code, this will allow you through the barrier and you can drive right to the top.

My wife and I went up to the top and had spectacular views of Auckland. There is a cannon at the top that was evidently only fired once. When fired it broke the windows in the area, so no more firings....

Left Auckland Port, Pier 1 in a Fullar Ferry for a 12 min voyage across the harbour to Devonport. Here we picked up a tour coach at the pier for an hour's interesting tour of the suburb. I was happy when our tour driver drove us up to the top of Mt Victoria /Takarunga as some were hiking up the slope. This is Auckland's largest volcano in the North Shore at 87 M.It has wonderful views even across to North Head the other, volcano in Devonport. There are approximately 50 in the Auckland Volcanic Field. However, this is mountain is green and looks down over the main street of the shopping area of Devonport and has wonderful views across to the Auckland Port and CBD and shows a Naval Base on Devonport side as well.
Here I snapped heaps of photos and enjoyed the time on a peaceful place.
Ferry cost $15 return Tour $30 and can be booked at Fullers Ferries Auckland before departing. A wonderful time out.

This is a lovely walk as detailed in many other reports. Great views and great exercise. The signage for the tunnels could be better so be prepared to explore. Many today were closed due to 'on going' work although no work seemed on-going! There is limited explanations of places and again you have to find them. Especially the explanations and pictures that are at the back of the building at the summit. The tunnel to the gun was open. On a warm day as it was today, water is absolutely vital.
