Beautiful beaches and local leisure
Northcote embodies an easy lifestyle: only 8km from the CBD and handy to a plethora of great amenities including walking distance from vibrant local shopping and AUT University’s Northern campus, plus quality primary and secondary schooling options. Excellent public transport is available on the Northern Busway, and Northern motorway access close by means you’re en route in no time. Or, catch the ferry from Birkenhead for a seaside commute.
The tee beckons at nearby Takapuna Golf Course, while other local leisure options like popular Takapuna Beach are ready to be enjoyed, with more water sports available at nearby Lake Pupuke. Smiths Bush, Onepoto Domain with its popular kids cycle tracks, and Onewa Domain including netball and cricket facilities are among the many green spaces on offer. Eventfinda Stadium down the road hosts a broad range of events.
A vibrant community
Northcote's community facilities include the Town Centre with local shopping and vibrant eateries that reflect the cultural diversity of the area, along with a library, community centre, early learning centre and art gallery. A significant investment in local parks, walkways and the town centre over the coming decade is set to make it even better. Smales Farm commercial hub, Shore City mall, Wairau Valley large format retail options and North Shore hospital are all close by, plus the iconic Bridgeway boutique cinemas.
