About Howick & Beyond

Located on the south-eastern border of Auckland, Howick is a traditional Kiwi community with an increasingly diverse population.

The wider Howick region includes the established suburbs of Pakuranga and Howick and the new growth areas of Botany and Flat Bush.

The tidal eastern beaches are safe, relaxed and family-friendly, with park-like surroundings. There’s often a kite-surfer or yacht around for onlookers entertainment.

To the east of Howick are farmland reserves and protected regenerating native bush. You’ll also find accessible patches of bush throughout residential areas and near the beaches.

The heart of Howick’s shopping area is located at Picton Street, where retailers have been trading since the mid-1840s. There is plenty of history in and around Howick, if you know where to look.

The culture is increasingly diverse with small reminders of Māori tangata whenua, strong British heritage and new Asian influences.  

The friendly people of Howick take pride in their homes and gardens; enjoy their local village for its market and café scene, and life generally is dominated by family activities.

Howickians are a quintessential example of a great Kiwi community.
