At the heart of Port Nikau, a town centre with 6,000m2 retail, hospitality and commercial activities is planned. We envisage the town centre supporting residents with everyday amenities and essentials.

Town Centre

A bespoke town centre is being designed to offer everyday services to Port Nikau residents, such as groceries and cafes, personal care and retail.

Walk & Cycle Paths

Waterfront walking and cycle trails feature along four kilometres of coastline, as well as an easy commute to the CBD and Town Basin.

Boat Ramp

The Port Nikau boat ramp will be open to all residents, with easy harbour access to Limestone Island, Onerahi, Parua Bay and the outer harbour entrance.


A modern 120-vessel marina is planned for the future and is located close to the Town Centre and within walking distance of home for Port Nikau residents. This will complement the existing superyacht marina.
