One of the beautiful things about Devonport is how it just keeps getting better! Often thought of as a summer destination, Devonport village offers warmth, comfort and plenty of fun, even in the winter months. With many exciting things to do, especially on a crisp, sunny day, leave the weight of the world at home and feel the stress instantly melt away as you enter the village.
Earlier this month our new state-of-the-art playground opened at Windsor Reserve. Just off the banks of Devonport Beach, with a towering Bean Rock inspired structure, this playground is quickly becoming a fast favourite for children of all ages. With a number of cafés nearby and plenty of seating around the playground, families can supervise their littles, takeaway coffee in-hand, while chatting with friends as their littles play for hours on end.
We also welcomed Jess’ Underground Kitchen to our, already fantastic, list of Devonport dining experiences. Jess’ Underground Kitchen – JUK for short – offers healthy, freshly cooked meals (for pick up or delivery), each are made with love and packed full of flavour. Convenient for busy families or singles looking for an easy and tasty way to eat well, they are located near the top of Victoria Road. Just look for the eye-catching, black and white mural as you drive down into the village.
Because we, like you, always dream of warmer weather, plans have begun for three dynamic Spring events that you will not want to miss. Mark your calendar now for:
GLOW 2020: Part of Artweek Auckland, this event is returning for it’s sixth year on October 16th & 17th.
Friday After 5 Open Street Party: To be held alongside GLOW, just around the corner on Clarence Street on Friday, October 16th.
Fashion on the Wharf: Ready to bring it big again this year on Thursday, November 12, this luxurious evening activates the Devonport Ferry Terminal like never before! Tickets sold out weeks in advance last year and we expect no different this year.
