Once use as a military stronghold North Head offers exploratory forays to the gun emplacements, disappearing guns, searchlights and into the tunnel system, which is open to the public and provides a fun experience for both adults and children alike.
North Head also offers stunning views of the Hauraki Gulf, providing beautiful walks along the waterline or onto the summit with great views of Rangitoto and Auckland due the prominent height of the hill
The walk from Devonport to North Head is also an experience in itself. The 30minute walk from the Devonport ferry terminal along the coastline passes Torpedo Bay and the Tainiu Memorial.
North Head offers a great place for a picnic, lunch date, and awesome destintation to take the children to explore and enjoy the stunning views on show.
