    Default Devonport... The Most Expensive Place To Live in Auckland, New Zealand

    Just watched this awesome video on Devonport Wharf and wanted to share it with you all.

    Still cant escape the fact that Devonport (Auckland) is over 75% Europeans (mainly brits). Cant belive the property prices for what is no more than a wooden hut on a tiny bit of land!

    Here is the video

    Hi Enki,

    That sounds typical of most big cities around the world where there is a mix of nationalities to be found (often because that's where the most jobs are to be found) and also the cost of living tends to be quite a bit higher than places outside the cities.

    Thanks for posting the link.

    MotherBear yes... also a good indication is the price of a coffee! In Devonport the arrange price of a long black is $3.50 most other places are around $4.50... Also I guess having more than 15 cafes helps keep the price under control!
