Devonport is a small seaside suburb a short ferry ride across the harbour from the the main Auckland CBD. It has managed to retain its quaint early colonial character because a fiercely loyal group of local inhabitants who have fought for years to prevent development that is out of sync with the local environment.
A major feature of the Devonport waterfront is the ferry wharf. It has undergone several redevelopments over the years, including the most recent (1990s) and probably most controversial. It is about to undergo another major refurbishment in 2012.
Several weeks ago I had a short walk along the Devonport shoreline and captured these images.
