Situated along the East Coast of the North Shore with tree lined streets, long beaches and unobstructed views of the Hauraki gulf and neighboring islands, picturesque Browns Bay is the quintessential beach town with a laid back beach atmosphere. The beachfront is central to the community and comes to life with family entertainment, beachfront eateries and a newly completed boardwalk - a great suburb for family living.
Well known for its sizeable South African and British communities there are South African shops such as the Janssen's delicatessen that sell a wide range of traditional South African products. For the British, there is Speaker's Corner, one of Auckland's iconic English pubs, and the British Isles Pub situated one bay South in Rothesay Bay. There is also the Bramptin's grocery store selling only British imported wares.
Browns Bay is well serviced being located close to the northern motorway and on two main bus routes, the first along Beach Road and the second along East Coast Road. Buses travel regularly to Takapuna and the city. You can also 'park and ride' to your destination with the Albany and Constellation Park and Ride stations located only a short drive away.
