The Hobbiton Movie Set Day Tour - From Auckland
This walk has a dog friendly off-leash area. And Devonport’s village-style shops and cafes are always a great place to visit and walk around. It’s fun to arrive in Devonport by ferry. And you could spend the whole day there – spend half the day at North Head and the other half at Mt Victoria with lunch and shop browse in-between…..
Wonderful views of Rangitoto, Hauraki Gulf and Auckland City, and historical buildings.
Mount Cambria Reserve – A volcanic cone that is now a park, having been quarried away for roading, garden walls and ship’s ballast.
Victoria Picture Palace/Theatre – built in 1912, the oldest cinema in NZ. It’s such a cool place, I love going to the movies here. The gelato ice-creams are the best!
My favourite cafe in Devonport is Lily, with such wonderful people and super excellent food plus the best flat white in town!
