Howick is an early Auckland settlement with a colourful history that comes to life at the world-class Howick Historical Village open air museum.  Today, Howick has retained its unique character despite extensive new development on its fringes.

Introducing Howick

Howick is a mix of the old and the new. The main village has a traditional feel with a nod to its history as a Fencible soldier settlement.  It is surrounded by older housing, notably the historical homes on Selwyn Rd and the All Saints’ Church built in 1847 which was the first parish church in Auckland. 

Only a few minutes further along the main road is the “new” Meadowlands Shopping Plaza and Asian shopping precinct on Meadowlands Drive with its authentic shops and restaurants.
