Remuera is widely considered one of Auckland’s most luxurious suburbs to call home. Sprawling over its prime central city location, it is nestled just four kilometres southeast of the city centre. A prime example of a “leafy” suburb, Remuera is noted for its quiet tree-lined streets and real estate which has an air of sophistication and ‘old money’.
Real estate here ranges from architecturally designed apartments and townhouses to some of New Zealand most glamourous estates. Remuera is characterised by many large houses, often Edwardian or mid 20th century in design.
When you live in Remuera, the best schools are a right of passage. People move here for easy access to top private schools – King’s, St Kentigern’s, Baradene and easy proximity to Diocesan and St Cuthberts in Epsom. It’s also in the ‘Grammar Zone’, a huge drawcard for the education conscious. Children in ‘the zone’ gain entry to sought-after high schools – Auckland Grammar for boys and Epsom Girls Grammar – guaranteeing a high standard of education. High decile primary schools include Remuera Primary, Victoria Avenue Primary and St Michael’s Catholic School, then there’s Remuera Intermediate as well.
Remuera has everything a family could wish for in a handy city fringe location with excellent schools and transport – regular buses and trains to the CBD and easy access to motorways that take you wherever you want – fast.
Remuera is regarded as the most genteel suburb of Auckland, yet it continues to evolve adding a vitality that draws a younger generation of locals. It will always be an aspirational choice for those who want the best money can buy – in close proximity to everything that’s worth having.

Just a short walk from Remuera shopping centre is one of Auckland’s most well-preserved volcanic cones. Formed some 25,000 years ago, Mt Hobson is 143m high and the expansive, panoramic view of Auckland from the summit is well worth the walk.
Enter the pathway to the summit from Remuera Road.
From the summit, you can enjoy an uninterrupted view of Auckland City, the Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto Island. Kids will enjoy this walk too, as Mt Hobson is also a working farm with cattle grazing nearby.
