We are definitely missing summer here at Takapuna Beach but hopefully winter is not getting you down. If it is, a visit to Takapuna Beach where a lot of exciting things are happening will surely warm you right up!

Two new exciting shops opened in Takapuna last month. Women’s fashion store RUBY introduced its Spring Collection during the opening of its new shop at 8 Hurstmere Road. Just across the road, Australian eyewear retailer Bailey Nelson has set up shop at 7 Hurstmere Road offering beautiful and affordable eyewear that celebrates your individual style. Hurstmere Road is definitely turning into a shopaholic’s dream come true!

We are kicking off this month with the 20th birthday of the Bruce Mason Centre. We are celebrating this very special day with a free and fun-filled weekend birthday celebration starting with a behind-the-scenes tour through the Bruce Mason Centre on Saturday the 6th of August, followed by a family-friendly concert and workshop with the Orchestra of Spheres and a slice of yummy birthday cake on Sunday. Later that day, the Auckland Symphony Orchestra will fill the theatre with a selection of popular music classics. All for FREE!

We are also expecting the new Takapuna Playground to open this month. I’m sure everyone is just as excited for the playground as we are! It looks amazing and with the playground overlooking the beach, it’ll be hard to convince the kiddoes to stop playing. Just one more reason why Takapuna is the place to be whether you’re looking for that new dress, craving something delicious for dinner, or wanting to spend quality time with the family.

The Takapuna Beach Winter Warmer Shop and Win Promotion has ended. We’re wishing whoever won the weeklong Trip for Two to Macao a lovely time. Watch out for whatever we come up with next and maybe you can be the next lucky Takapuna Beach shopper.

A teaser for what we have planned for Takapuna for the upcoming months: your taste buds will be treated to something delightful this spring at Takapuna Beach. Something special is being cooked up in your favourite restaurants!
