Waiatarua has always been Auckland’s  gateway to the green of our forest and ocean, the black of the West Coast and the gold of Kauri.

We live in the Waitakere Ranges because we enjoy the nature, the silence, the air and the views; often of the twin coasts.

The Waiatarua Ratepayers and Residents Association (WRRA) was formed in the 1960’s to lobby Auckland City Council about unfair rate increases to benefit urban and suburban at the cost of rural.

Waiatarua is no longer considered fully rural and neither do we want to be.  We are part of Auckland but while we look upon the magic of Auckland each day, most Aucklanders are not looking out or up towards us.

The WRRA exists to represent.

If you’d like to know more, to meet us, or your neighbours, or just to have some free feed and drink then come along.


At the AGM we present our achievements of 2017 and set out the plan for 2018.

Ratepayers and residents will vote in the Executive Committee of the WRRA.

We promise to keep our AGM as short as possible so we can focus on catching up and finding out about important issues, like kauri dieback.

Who’s welcome?

Everybody.  Our meeting is open to the public but only members of the WRRA can vote.

Guest Speakers

After the AGM Dr Mels Barton of the Tree Council will update us on the current status of efforts to understand and fight kauri dieback.

She may bring some other guest speakers and we welcome you and your questions.

If you can’t be there feel free to send us a question at committee@waiatarua.org.nz and we will ask on your behalf and report back.
