Moving to Kaipara

The Kaipara District offers many attractions to those seeking a rural lifestyle less than two hours from the services of Auckland City. The Kaipara provides affordable housing, a rural lifestyle and a great sense of community that can only be found in a rural New Zealand town.  Great opportunities exist for adventure, active outdoor recreation, a quite retirement or simply enjoying the fishing.  Health care facilities and schools are available in major centres across the District.

Kaipara District Council is committed to making Kaipara a great place to live, work and play.  This includes keeping rates affordable and working with communities to provide good quality local infrastructure including roads, footpaths, boat ramps and parks and open space.
