Auckland Guide


Voted four times ‘Best Shopping Precinct” in Auckland’ by Metro readers, a reputation earned from its selection of luxury and exclusive stores.

But Newmarket is much more than just upmarket fashion stores.  Take a couple of hours to explore what lies behind Broadway and you’ll find a diverse mix of modern and old, ugly and beautiful, artistic and technical; a leading fashion store next to an old depot of an ironworks.  Seek out a cultural change too with the Asian market and Chinatown precinct in Kent Street.

Newmarket Auckland Kent StreetBeautiful homeware, giftware and fashion boutiques can be found pepper-potted down the likes of Teed and Morrow streets. Nuffield Street is Newmarket’s newest destination to see and be seen in. Not only is it home to the latest look but it also hosts a popular cluster of alfresco cafes, restaurants and bars.

Stretch out in Newmarket Park, Lumsden Green or the Domain.  Take a dip in the 50 metre Newmarket pool and gym or take one of the many pilates and yoga classes.

Discover the suburb’s rich history on the Newmarket Heritage walk featuring buildings like the handsome 1888 Penny Black bar and restaurant, and the Historic Places Trust run 1862 Highwic House.
