EVENT: Devonport Naval Base open day


The Navy will open its doors to the public for the first open day in over three years. See your Navy in action – free ship and base tours, band performances, damage control displays, parade and precision marching, helicopters, kapa haka performances and more!

Five ships will be open to the public for tours, with HMNZS MANAWANUI anchored off the wharves conducting boarding demonstrations all day.  Shore-side, the Open Day offers opportunities to watch sailors marching, and enjoy Navy Band and kapa haka performances. 

There will be flag hoisting competitions, physical training displays, and simulations of damage control and fire-fighting techniques.  The Navy’s Bridge Simulator will be open for tours, where you can see entries into both Auckland and Sydney harbours from the perspective of a naval frigate.
