The Northcote town centre (recently known as Northcote Central) has long been the heart of its community, developed as a model town and community centre in 1959. Since then the centre has grown and developed, reflecting its surrounding area and people – now a truly multi-ethnic centre and promoted as ‘Auckland’s Centre of Culture’.

Northcote Central is in a highly accessible location close to the Auckland
CBD via easy access to Harbour Bridge, motorways and is a major public bus connection hub to many suburbs.
Add the convenience of many free carparks and it’s really worth a visit to experience this place we describe as a COLOURFUL, CULTURAL, CELEBRATION!
