Newmarket is Auckland’s one-stop-shop for fashion, shopping, great food and entertainment. Wander the charming shops and cafés around Teed Street, a calm oasis of fashion, décor and art, or hit the mall for more than 230 stories and not one, but two levels of restaurants!
As one of Auckland’s earliest trading posts, Newmarket has always been a destination for commerce. It’s come a long way from its 19th-century heyday of being the “new market” for livestock and goods. Today, Newmarket has a high density of designer stores including David Jones, Balenciaga, Gucci, RUBY, Karen Walker and Juliette Hogan.
Westfield Newmarket is a destination in its own right. Amble through two complexes of retail heaven, each with its own vibe or price range. We’re talking hundreds of shops, two food courts and one massive cinema complex. After some retail therapy, grab a quite bite at the food court or one of the glam rooftop establishments. Prost with a Bavarian-style stein at the gastropub or dine with a view at White & Wongs, perched at the mall’s highest point. Got energy to spare? Enjoy retro arcade games at Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq, the mall’s entertainment hub for adults and children alike.
Street art and murals offer a fitting backdrop for the colourful pockets around Newmarket. Walk along Broadway, the main thoroughfare of Newmarket, or around the charming laneways to find a strong café game, vegan ice cream and noodle dishes galore. Some eateries, including The Candy Shop and Pearl Garden, practically double as Auckland landmarks. For a taste of it all, peruse the cobbled laneways of Osborne Lane to find eats, boutiques and beauty in one quaint area.
Keen for a date night? Take your pick of three movie theatres in the area, including the largest arthouse cinema in Auckland. Get some fresh air afterwards at Auckland Domain or Newmarket Park, each only a 10-minute stroll away.
