Welcome to Wynyard Street

Morning commuters headed to Auckland's CBD, or racing home at the end of the day, always take Wynyard street, Devonport's own little urban artscape, and gritty industrial corridor. Here block walls are painted bright by noted artists Kelly Spencer, Cinzah, Charlotte Hawley and Marcus Watson, creating a distinctive Devonport flavour, seasoned by Devonport Chocolate, Chiasso Coffee Roaster and the Middle Eastern taste of Karavan Delicatessen. 

On this road reside Kevin Johnson Boat Builders, Firefly Light & Design, Devonport School of Dance, mechanics and artists, architects and journalists. It's a salt and pepper place, known well by locals and only ever stumbled upon by visitors.

This Devonport Messenger will introduce you to some of these Wynyard Street Businesses, as well as celebrate the upcoming extension of the Devonport Arts Festival Art Trail, taking place April 28th, and starting, once again on Wynyard Street.

Reformed by Devonport Physio & Pilates

Sarah Metcalf is our resident physio and pilates guru who owns Devonport Physio & Pilates on Wynyard Street. We don’t just love her for her commitment to physical wellness, we also love her for nailing the super mum gig – because when she’s not busy getting the bodies of her clients into line, she’ll be getting her own three little loves (including 2 year old twins!) straightened out. We ask Sarah a few nosy questions to find out what pilates is all about…
