Our commitment to community is already making Hobsonville Point a great place to live. Because this is a government led development it’s about putting people first.
A strong community is a diverse one. We’re building homes to suit a range of ages and means. And we’re creating facilities to cater for all members of our community.
Our commitment is to following urban design best practice principles. That means the tangible things like high-speed broadband, energy efficient homes, excellent public transport, plenty of open space and first-rate schools from years 1-13.
But even more important are the intangibles; that all members of our community feel safe, supported, have a sense of belonging, a voice that counts and that they enjoy living at Hobsonville Point.

The Hobsonville Point Farmers Market is a real ‘foodies’ market, selling fresh local farm produce, breads, meat, fish, cheese, eggs, organics, coffee, honey, flowers, to name just a few! There are lots of opportunities to taste fresh produce to be inspired by cooking demonstrations using produce from the market.
The Sunderland Lounge is one of the old air force buildings we have ‘re-purposed’. It’s now a community hall available for one-off events and regular bookings.
The plant network
The Hobsonville Point plant network is a community project to propagate native seedlings for remedial planting on the coast and throughout the township, including your back yard.
