Past, present and future are all represented within this diverse ward. From early Maori occupation and European settler roots to a new multicultural community, the greater Howick Ward has a great deal to offer visitors. The old suburb of Howick, from which the new ward takes its name, is a truly historic precinct with much to see and do for visitors of all persuasions. What’s more, most of it is free!
Purewa Cemetery and Crematorium has been serving the people in the eastern suburbs since 1889.
