Port Nikau
In the heart of Whangarei
Situated in the centre of Whangarei's commercial district at the end of Port Road, Port Nikau is uniquely positioned out into Whangarei Harbour to create genuine waterfront living and harbourside opportunities for businesses.
Accessible to all amenities

Formerly home to the city’s port, Port Nikau is now ready and waiting to be revitalised. Port Nikau represents 100 hectares of freehold development, with over four kilometres of coastline, access to deep water and close proximity to arterial routes, amenities and facilities. Less than 5km off State Highway One, and less than 4km to Whangarei’s central business district, Port Nikau can easily be accessed by boat from Onerahi and Limestone Island, with deep water marine facilities available.

From this central location, primary, intermediate, secondary schools and tertiary institutions are all located within 5km and it is just 9km to Whangarei Airport and 5km to Whangarei Hospital. The nearest supermarket and shopping centre are less than 3km away.

Quality urban design

Port Nikau has been gradually shaped over the past ten years, to create a development that will help meet a number of future demands from our city. The project will include quality residential precincts, village centre, entertainment and recreational areas and business and commercial precincts, all guided by the Urban Design Protocol to create quality urban design. Port Nikau will support the region’s economic development by meeting community demand for high quality social urban living; inner city green spaces; community facilities for walking and cycling; retirement residences; and retail and commercial activity, including a marine precinct.

Growing our city

From its unique location, Port Nikau will support the region’s economic development by meeting community demand for high quality social urban living; inner city green spaces; community facilities for walking and cycling; retirement residences; and retail and commercial activity, including a marine precinct. Landscaping is underway now, with walking and cycling accessways expected to be open to the public in 2017.
