About Port Nikau

The Port Nikau Development represents over a decade of planning, with the vision to create a new way of living for Whangarei. The development represents 100 hectares of residential, commercial and marine opportunities, which will come to life in the next 5-10 years.


Port Nikau will become Whangarei’s inspired urban waterfront community, designed for the future and offering a new way of living.


Port Nikau is uniquely positioned out into Whangarei Harbour to create genuine waterfront living and harbourside opportunities for businesses.


Port Nikau is the long term vision of two committed, passionate business partners wanting to make Whangarei a better place to live.

Formerly home to the city’s port, Port Nikau is now ready and waiting to be revitalised. 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 and access for residents to the beautiful Whangarei Harbour. 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.
