Recreation& Sports

Being a Peninsula, Devonport is surrounded by water, on one side the Waitematā Harbour, and the other The Gulf Harbour. For the adventure seekers, the fishing enthusiasts, the sailors and the golfers, there's ample choice for staying busy and active in Devonport. 



Waitematā Golf Club

The Waitematā Golf Club was founded in 1905 and is the nearest golf course to Auckland City. The 18 hole course contour is flat, allowing easy walking through beautiful parklike surroundings with well established trees, shrubs and water features. Non playing public may walk through our course so players must share with care.

Paragliding from North Head 

In addition to being a fantastic spot for exploring hidden military tunnels, some more adventurous types enjoy catching a wave of wind and taking flight. North Head is often used as a kite-flying location and a quality spot for experienced paragliders. It is amazingly scenic with views of gorgeous Devonport, Cheltenham Beach, the Hauraki Gulf and all it's wonderful Islands, but also Downtown Auckland, the Harbour Bridge and the Waitakeres.

Learn to Sail at Narrow Neck Beach 

If you've always wanted to try your hand at sailing, employ the wind and anchor away, then young and old can learn at the Wakatere boating club in Narrow Neck beach. Situated on the outskirts of Devonport this beach features a boat ramp for launching small craft, and is popular with sailing enthusiasts and locals. With parking close by, a children’s playground, on site barbecue facilities and a small shop for a mandatory ice cream Narrow Neck is also the perfect destination for family picnics, so make a day of it.
