Kaipara KickStart will:
  • Increase tourism to the district and Northland region
  • Creating employment opportunities
  • Increase kai business opportunities in horticulture and aquaculture
  • Improve roads for more reliable routes and safer journeys
  • Increase wharf infrastructure for communities to connect and enjoy


With a kind climate, great soils and the largest harbour in the Southern Hemisphere, Kaipara has rolling farmlands fringed with spectacular bays and beaches. As the perfect gateway between Auckland and the rest of the North, this part of the Northland region is largely unknown and is full of potential.


Three Kaipara KickStart projects are already underway.


Key roads and bridges need upgrading to support business and community growth, to make our roads safer, more reliable and to connect communities.
