Hobsonville Point has a fascinating history. The air base played a critical role in New Zealand's efforts to defend our country and fight alongside our allies during WWII. At the same time our commercial aviation industry was being pioneered from Hobsonville Point. Prior to 1929 the land provided richly for Maori and pakeha alike, offering up seafood, timber, kauri gum and clay for pottery.
The transformation of Sunderland Avenue is all but complete. Developer, Willis Bond & Co has painstakingly renovated the avenue's ten bungalows, which were built in the 1930s to house RAF officers and their families. The additions and improvements were designed by heritage architects, Salmond Reed to complement the original English Domestic Revival style of the bungalows.
The picturesque Mill House was built in 1930 as a home for Doug Mill, his wife Audrey and their family. The Mills were key figures in the foundation of New Zealand's aviation industry. The dashing couple with a passion for flying operated their air transport and survey business from a hangar at Hobsonville Point between 1927 and 1937.
In 2001 the air force began gradually relocating operations to their base at nearby Whenuapai. Many of the early houses and buildings will remain and be reused to preserve Hobsonville Point's character and provide a link to the communities the area has been home to in the past.
