Local Spotlight

Helensville News is the local newspaper covering Helensville, Parakai, South Head, Shelly Beach, Kaukapakapa, Waitoki, Wainui and Woodhill.                            

 

"Helensville is a mix of go-ahead town and heritage charm."
            'Where to Live in Auckland'

"Why Helensville? A relaxed and unpretentious small town with a scent of the sea and pine forest. It offers history, adventure and scenic pieces."
            On Holiday Magazine

 

Helensville, New Zealand, is a scenic 40 minute drive north from downtown Auckland.

Nestled beside the Kaipara River on the south edge of the Kaipara Harbour, historic Helensville's relaxed lifestyle has plenty to offer both visitors and permanent residents. In fact, Helensville was named as one of New Zealand's 'Top Ten Small Towns' by North and South magazine.

Within easy commuting distance of the country's largest city - as well as satellite developments such as Albany - it boasts a wealth of recreational amenities.

These include harbour cruising, natural thermal pools at adjacent Parakai, fishing, golf, horse riding, restaurants, nearby vineyards, beaches, plus a range of adventure tourism activities - the list goes on (see 'Things to Do' and 'What's On').

And there are plenty of places to stay while you're enjoying it all.

The town is served by a wealth of community, religious and Maori groups and sporting organisations and clubs, and there is a range of options for education. Local business is undergoing a surge of growth, and caters for virtually every requirement.

Helensville - a great place to visit, and a top town to live in!
