Koru Koha (New Beginning Gift) Heart of Village
Devonport has a rich history: the landing site of the Tainui canoe, maori settlements and the first european settlement in the Auckland region. There is a rich connection to New Zealand's naval history, early ship building and busy maritime traditions. It is also a community rich in artistic and creative arts, and active in ecological and peace campaigns. A great selection of cafes and restaurants, retail shops, local movie theater, historic architecture and beautiful beaches are all on the doorstep. Devonport is also a launching point for adventures on the islands of the Hauraki Gulf and a quick ferry ride to Auckland's central city and vibrant waterfront area.
