Hobsonville Point is Auckland’s fastest growing community. It’s ambitious, visionary and is transforming what was an old Defence Force base into a thriving community with over 4,500 homes. Come and visit today.
Kerepeti is beautifully connected and getting here couldn’t be easier, just take a look at the map and you’ll see for yourself. Sitting halfway between Westgate and Albany it’s easily accessible on SH18 either from SH1 or in just 20 minutes, off-peak, from the Auckland CBD via SH16.
Buses run frequently both to and from Hobsonville Point and there is a ferry service that runs direct from downtown Auckland to Hobsonville Point offering the option to skip any potential traffic and instead enjoy a picturesque cruise right to the Landing.
Our Display Suite is located on the corner of Hobsonville Point Road and Glidepath Road and is open from 10-4pm daily.
Things To Do
Hobsonville is jam packed with things to do and however you like to spend your free time, there is something for the entire family.
Here are some of our favourite ways to spend a day.
- Head to the Catalina Café for a fantastic brunch in a beautiful, lovingly restored, historic building dating from 1938. It was previously used for avionic repairs and as a signals and communications centre for the RNZAF as a part of the Hobsonville airbase.
- The Hobsonville Point Farmers Market, an artisan food market open every weekend, sells everything from locally produced meats and breads to coffee, honey and flowers. Set in an old airplane hanger on the wharfside to the Waitematā Harbour, whatever the weather you’ll be able to sample food from a large variety of vendors, grab your produce for the week and take a little time to browse the unique handmade items in the lifestyle section.
- Hire a bike from outside the Catalina Café or take the kids and the dog for a stroll down the coastal walkway through Hobsonville Point Park stopping off at the playground. Next head over towards the art walk in the neighbouring Hobsonville precinct. Part of the design for Hobsonville Point is to be a free sculpture gallery. Click here for a guide to where all the installations are, just remember to bring your phone for all the Instagram moments you won’t want to miss.
- Learn something new about old Auckland. Hobsonville Point’s history is presented in stories and pictures at the ferry wharf. And if you’ve brought along your fishing rod, why not stop for some meditative fishing off the wharf’s edge.
Just a little way out you’ll find NorthWest Shopping Centre and slightly further up the road you’ll find Albany Westfield with its 140 stores, QBE Stadium, North Shore Events Centre, Takapuna and Mairangi Bay beaches, Snowplanet offering all year round fun in the snow, Historic Riverhead with its 150 year old tavern, Woodhill Forest, Muriwai Beach and Parakai Springs. And if you’re a fan of great wine, Kumeu wine country is moments away offering nine wineries, picturesque picnic spots, woodfired barbecues and fine dining.
At Hobsonville Point the community is fortunate to have two new schools, Hobsonville Point Primary and Hobsonville Point Secondary school. With Kerepeti you will be in easy reach of both of them. Kerewhenua is opposite the primary school and Uku is opposite the Secondary school. There will be no need to head to the car for the morning school run as a quick walk across the road is all that is needed.
The schools share a common approach to learning and collaborate regularly. When your child moves from primary to secondary they will already be familiar with the environment, staff and older students.
Community is the keyword when talking about Hobsonville Point. It is friendly, welcoming and inclusive – the kind of place where you know your neighbours and the next community event is never far away.
Deliberately designed as a medium density suburb, one of the chief aims at Hobsonville Point is to build a diverse community. Support for a healthy and active lifestyle, meeting the needs of both young and old, and homes catering for all ages and stages are benefits of Hobsonville Point. Neighbourhoods are designed for safe walking and cycling and have been planned and built to promote interaction of the community.
