WE Live in such a high-quality area, AND DESLEY HAS BEEN WORKING TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER.
The Orakei Ward includes the suburbs of Orakei, Mission Bay,Kohimarama, St Heliers, Glendowie, Stonefields, St Johns, Meadowbank, Remuera and parts of Ellerslie.
The Orakei Local Board area is a place where the central city meets the suburbs, and the suburbs meet the sea. Our ward contains some of Auckland largest and best private and state schools making Orakei one of the most unique and sought-after places to raise a family.
We are proud of our beaches, parks and reserves, and our character suburbs. We value our distinct cultural heritage, such as the Mission House and the Whenua Rangatira (including Bastion Point), and our unique natural heritage, such as New Zealand's biggest urban wetland at Waiatarua Reserve. Our town centres, Ellerslie, Remuera, Mission Bay and St Heliers, are thriving and benefit Aucklanders inside and outside our ward.
