Breathing the past into the future

Breathing the past into the future

Tāmaki is the place where Auckland’s story began.

Its history stretches back over a thousand years to the first Māori settlers of the area, who paddled waka down the river to the rich fishing grounds of the Waitematā harbour and beyond.

The area was highly prized for its fertile soil and its food basket of trees, birds, and seafood. The river also became an important portage point for Māori. Carrying their canoes from the upper Tāmaki Estuary to Onehunga, they avoided the long trip around North Cape. Portage Road traces the original route of these early waka.

Today the people of Tāmaki are a blend of cultures, ages, and backgrounds, building on the past to find a new story. Move to Tāmaki today and be a part of our exciting future.
