Epsom ranks amongst Auckland’s most desirable suburbs. Just ten minutes from the CBD, seamless connections to major arterial roads bring the harbour, neighbouring villages and retail hubs within reach.
For families, Epsom sits at the heart of the highly prized “Double Grammar Zone” and is home to two of the top performing public schools in the country – Auckland Grammar School and Epsom Girls Grammar – as well as a host of excellent primary, intermediate and private schools.
A piece of the countryside in the heart of the city, this lovely urban park offers an instant escape from the hustle and bustle with oak tree-lined roads, winding paths and grazing sheep and cattle.
Bordering Alexandra Park, Cornwall Park and neighbouring One Tree Hill Domain form the largest park in Auckland, gifted to the people over a century ago. If you feel like rambling through wide-open green spaces, the precinct’s master plan includes enhanced connections to this expansive park via the existing public realm network.
Drive to the summit of One Tree Hill and enjoy the 360˚ vistas. Gather up the kids for games on the grass, saddle up for a bike ride, or unpack a picnic under the shade trees and just be.
From the boutique intimacy of Vulcan Lane to the waterfront glamour of Viaduct Harbour, Auckland’s CBD is a hub of diversity and the largest and most cosmopolitan city in New Zealand.
Head to Queen Street for high-street fashion and international brands such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Duck off into the cobbled back lanes for boutiques, stores and eateries with an individual flavour.
Get your cultural fix at Auckland Art Gallery followed by an afternoon stroll through beautiful Albert Park. City Works Depot, the latest inner-city foodie hot spot, is great for a casual bite, or dine in style on the water’s edge at Viaduct Harbour’s buzzing dining and entertainment precinct with its sleek super yachts as a backdrop.
If your heart is set on shopping, nearby Newmarket provides Auckland’s premier retailing, with a big focus on fashion. Its high-impact mix of main street stores, bustling Westfield Shopping Centre and diverse emporiums of designer brands makes this upmarket suburb the fashion capital of New Zealand.
Or, for a change of scenery, you’ll find the cafés, restaurants, providores and hip small bars of charming Mt Eden village within an easy amble of Alexandra Park. Housed in historic village stores, the cluster of boutique shops, artisan baker, fine butcher, bistros, wine purveyors and eateries elicit a well-earned buzz.
