Navy takes Centre Stage in Devonport March 24th
The Royal New Zealand Navy is an essential component of the Devonport place. Indeed Devonport got its name from the Devonport naval base in England and the presence of the frigates in the Waitemata Harbour is often a sight locals may think little of, but is marveled at by our visitors.
This year the Navy will be opening its gates, inviting the public to step aboard and get a real taste for life in one of our three major defence forces. The village will be getting festive for the occasion and we’ll be offering family friendly activities, street entertainers and plenty of fun. So put the 24th in your diaries – where we look forward to seeing you in Devonport.
