Ruakaka Town Centre

A vibrant town with a bright future, Ruakaka has a permanent community of around 4000 residents.

Ruakaka Town Centre has everything you need:

Dentist, Doctors and pharmacy
Westpac Bank and ATM
Supervalue Supermarket
Bream Bay College
Kindergarten and Crèche
Recreation Centre and Sports Fields
Cafes and restaurants as well as many other shops and offices.

Whangarei (which is about 30 minutes’ drive away) boasts a weekly Growers’ Market, which is the biggest and most well-established of its kind in NZ. Even on the coldest, most inclement winter mornings, this market is humming. More about markets…
