Hobsonville Point Community Facilities


In Hobsonville Point, there are two community facilities that are owned by Auckland Council. These facilities are being managed by Hobsonville Community Trust (HCT). These are the “Headquarters Building – Te Mahere” and “Sunderland Lounge – Te Rere”. Both are located within a 1 minute walk of each other and there is also the Headquarters Park across the road from the Headquarters Building.
