Torpedo Bay

Torpedo Bay on Waitemata Harbour boasts a picturesque location near North Head. It’s a popular spot for swimming and is also home to the impressive Navy Museum. It’s an easy and scenic walk from Devonport’s ferry terminal along King Edward Parade to reach Torpedo Bay. Stop at the acclaimed galleries, stores and cafes along the route.

 

In 1882 an Engineer Submarine Mining Corps and Torpedo Corps was formed to install and maintain a mine field across the Auckland Harbour entrance with facilities situated below North Head. Torpedo Bay, named after the torpedoes or mines as they were then known has also been known as Haukapua and Pilots Bay.

 

The location played a key role in Auckland’s early defence systems and has had a military presence since 1880.
