Short piece - ANZAC DAY -Hobsonville Point Community Peace Poppy Project

Apr 21 2017 Community

For the third year in a row, residents of Hobsonville Point participated in the installation of roughly 1800 Peace Poppies in commemoration of ANZAC day. 

Come rain and shine - Hobsonville Point Early Learning Centre, residents from the Waterford Retirement Village and other community members showed up at Hobsonville Point Park to help install a vivid red square for all to enjoy.

The Peace Poppy Project began in 2013 and is the brainchild of West Auckland artist Cristina Beth. It seeks to remember and honour those who have served. Over the past three years, Hobsonville Point residents and students at Hobsonville Point’s two schools made the poppies installed this year.

If you live in or near Hobsonville Point, come along to help with the deinstallation on 27 April between 10 am and 10.30 am and take a peace poppy home as a symbol of peace and a reminder of those who served.

Come Fly With Me

Bomb Point – Te Onekiritea Point

For the fourth year in a row Te Onekiritea Point (Bomb Point) will spark into life for one fun filled day of flying and festivities. This year HLC & The Open Fort are teaming up with Hobsonville Point Secondary School, with 400 students helping to design, create and deliver flight themed activities, games, and displays. From kite flying to lantern decorating, juggling to carnival games, face painting, races, science experiments, dance performances, live music and much, much more. 


Last years favourite Peter Clark is back with his giant 3D kites as well as some of the best food trucks from the local area and around Auckland. Kites are also available for purchase on the day (with all proceeds going to Operation Christmas Child). 


Grab a friend or the whole family and head to Bomb Point for this free event, 10-2pm, Sunday April 9th. Bring along your kite, get involved in one of the exciting activities, or just relax on a picnic blanket and marvel at the sights, sounds and action. 


Rain date: Hobsonville Point High School will host a showcase of the students projects, Wednesday 12th April, 10.30-12.

Plans for Catalina Bay (‘The Landing’) Released

Mar 16 2017 Development

Willis Bond & Co has released its plans for Catalina Bay, an exciting new waterfront development at Hobsonville Point. The area will include a mix of retail, hospitality and apartment buildings, housed in the existing historic RNZAF hangars and workshops, as well as new modern additions sympathetic to the area’s rich history. 

Many will know this area as The Landing, but the headland is more accurately named Catalina Bay, referencing the Catalina seaplanes that were once based in the area. It’s now home to a vibrant twice-weekly Farmers Market and a ferry terminal to the CBD, and forms part of the 4km coastal walkway around Hobsonville Point. 

Catalina Bay is masterplanned by Cheshire Architects, the firm behind innovative developments such as Britomart and City Works Depot. Stage One of the development plan consists of commercial, hospitality and retail opportunities within the character-filled RNZAF buildings. Construction for Stage One has begun, and tenancies will be completed progressively from late-2017 through to late-2018. Stage Two will deliver 60-80 high-quality seaside apartments, and Stages Three and Four will deliver new-build commercial, hospitality and retail tenancies.
