St. Heliers is an established seaside locality with a vibrant and unique village centre. Located at the end of Tamaki Drive, St. Heliers is the furtherest of the Eastern Bays beaches and yet is only a 15 minute drive from downtown during off-peak hours. The suburb attracts a range of residents from young families to more senior people, all no doubt attracted by the more relaxed pace and close proximity to city beaches.
St. Heliers was established at the end of the 19th century and quickly became a popular seaside holiday destination for Aucklanders who arrived by ferry, from the city. The opening of Tamaki Drive in 1931 transformed the area into suburb within striking distance of the city. A permanent population grew quickly from this point however the area still retains much of its original seaside character and charm.
Known as “the Bay”, St. Heliers village is well patronised by locals from the surrounding areas. The centre has an excellent range of shops from grocery stores, a butcher and fruit and vege shop to stationers, banks, and travel agents. Speciality stores complement these essential shops.
St. Heliers has a fantastic library housed in its original historic building. Other services include several doctors surgeries, a Medlab as well as legal, accounting and secretarial services.
St. Heliers is served by buses and taxis.
St, Heliers has a number of cafes and restaurants offering ethnic cuisine to contemporary New Zealand fare. More dining options are available at nearby Mission Bay, albeit at a more bustling and busy pace!
