Situated approximately 90 minutes from the Auckland Harbour Bridge, Waipu is a fast-growing friendly village with easy access to some of Northland’s favourite beaches. Uretiti, Ruakaka, Waipu Cove, Langs Beach and One Tree Point are only a short drive away.
With a rich Scottish Heritage and strong sense of community, Waipu is a quirky little town with a big personality. Waipu was the centre of a significant Presbyterian settlement led by Rev. Norman McLeod, a Presbyterian Minister who led his people from the Highlands of Scotland to New Zealand via Pictou and St. Ann’s in Nova Scotia and Australia. Five shiploads containing over 800 settlers arrived at Waipu in the 1850s. This influence has made Waipu a friendly coastal town with a Scottish heart.
