The heart of Whangārei's harbour

Situated in the centre of Whangarei's commercial district, Port Nikau is uniquely positioned out into Whangarei Harbour to create genuine waterfront living and harbourside opportunities for businesses.

In the heart of Whangārei

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.

A new community, a new way of living

Today, when so much of our environment is already defined and established, there are very few opportunities to design a new space and a new way of living. Port Nikau will become a new community, incorporating a range of high quality urban living options, a marina and a village centre and commercial precinct to support Northland’s growing regional economy. This is a new community that will grow from within, and support our city and our region.


Close to all amenities


Port Nikau is situated just 2km from one of Whangarei’s largest employment and industrial areas in Port Road and Kioreroa Road. Whangarei CBD is a short 5km cycle or drive away and it is just 9km to Whangarei Airport. The nearest supermarket and shopping centre are less than 3km away.


Within 10km of Port Nikau are key service amenities and other high employment areas such as NorthTec, Northland’s largest tertiary provider, and Whangarei Base Hospital.


A great selection of quality early childcare facilities, and primary, intermediate and secondary schools are located within five kilometres of Port Nikau, with bus transport available from Port Road.
