Te Atatu Peninsula is one of Aucklandís more accessible western suburbs situated approximately 12 kilometres from central Auckland.  Te Atatu Peninsula geographically borders the inner Waitemata Harbour and Henderson Creek. 


Te Atatu Peninsula was first inhabited in the early 1840's with people living on the banks of the Taimata Creek, growing potatoes, kumara, and other vegetables, and digging Kauri gum for trade. The Te Atatu Peninsula Town Centre came later. It began as a small group of shops servicing an expanding suburban area, which came to life following the construction of the motorway (State Highway 16) in 1956.


In the last 10 years the Peninsula has experienced significant population growth and a changing demographic. The people living on the Peninsula represent a broad range of age groups and an increasingly diverse ethnic mix.


The Te Atatu Peninsula shopping and commercial area is identified as a Town Centre in the Growth Management Strategy for Waitakere. It is predicted that there will be higher levels of growth in the centre than in other parts of the city. These predictions are supported by recent growth statistics.


Te Atatu Peninsula boasts a full complement of amenities including a supermarket, library, community hall, police and fire stations, numerous eating establishments, primary and intermediate schools and numerous parks
