The Devonport Messenger
Well...we made it! Grateful to see the return of blue skies and the warmth of the sun, sand and seas, which always comes with a renewed sense of energy, here in Devonport we're excited to be hosting visitors from around Auckland and New Zealand!
Devonport Visitor Information Centre gets a Beautiful New Name!
The Devonport Visitor Information Centre Caravan is officially OPEN and it has a cute new name! Special thanks to Dawn Pearce, Frank Galvin, Kerry Stroobant and @Phillipa6a (on IG), a combination of their suggestions came together to give us..."MOANA BELLE"
A huge thank you to everyone who submitted a name entry and again to our winners - we received so many amazing suggestions. If you have yet to see our cute little caravan, make sure to stop in for a visit, say hello to our fantastic volunteers at the Devonport Ferry Terminal.
The buzz of Christmas spirit is already in the air and there will be no shortage of shopping and fun experiences over the Holiday Season. With a little something for everyone on your list this year, Devonport is a great place to wrap up your shopping in a relaxed seaside setting!
Between shopping and trips to one of our many picturesque beaches, there is plenty of summer programming at the Library and Community House for children and adults alike.
And naturally, we have to talk about those famous “yacht races” that we've all been waiting for with anticipation. With prime and picturesque viewing points right across Devonport, you can see these high speed yachts, practicing and racing, from many of our beaches and from the peaks of Maungauika/North Head or Takarunga/Mt. Victoria. If indoors with some nibbles and drinks is more your style, then pop into any one of our amazing restaurants and cafés in the village...they are ready to greet you with fabulous sea-side fare!
Thank you to AT for this honour and huge thanks to Ken Davis (former DBA Board Member), Toni van Tonder (former BID Manager/ current DTLB Member), Kirsten Newton and Ruth Findlay who were the masterminds behind bringing Devonport's PARK(ing) Day to life!
