Ponsonby, Auckland Central

About Ponsonby:

Ponsonby is an inner-city Auckland suburb situated 2 kilometres west of the Auckland CBD in New Zealand's North Island. The suburb is positioned along a ridge running north–south, which is followed by Ponsonby Road, the suburb's main street.

Ponsonby, a largely upper-middle-class residential suburb, is now also renowned in Auckland for its dining and retail establishments – Ponsonby Road is lined with restaurants, cafes, art galleries, up-market stores, and nightclubs.

The Ponsonby suburb had a population of 5,730 people and 2,085 households in the 2018 New Zealand census.

Three Lamps Area

Ponsonby has an area known as Three Lamps, which is situated at the north end of the street. This name is taken from a lamppost from the nineteenth century.

There are other intersections in the UK named Three Lamps for the same purpose, including Crewe and Totterdown in Bristol, which may have inspired the derivation here. There was also a pub of the same name in Swansea, Wales, and one in Macau, China.

Ponsonby Road

Ponsonby Road, which runs the length of the ridge from the Karangahape Road intersection in the south to the Three Lamps intersection in the north, is the suburb's main thoroughfare. Williamson Avenue, Richmond Road, and Franklin Road are the three major intersections along the route.

Local Schools

Marist School and Richmond Road School are primary schools, and St Paul's College is a secondary school. Western Springs College, Auckland Girls' Grammar School, and St Mary's College are nearby secondary schools.

Who wants to visit Néw Zealand?

Hotel Fitzroy is a stunning new luxury hotel that has just opened in the heart of Ponsonby, Auckland New Zealand.

Hosting a few visiting international celebrities in their opening week, this place is going to be a huge success with locals and tourists alike.

We were greeted with warm smiles by the manager Sara and after a delicious welcoming signature spritz tea and paperless check-in we got shown to the Richmond Suite. All the products in the room are eco friendly and sustainable, including the key card. Every room features Dyson hairdryers, Complimentary mini bar, Local and sustainable luxurious bathroom amenities, robe and slippers

Following a quick shopping trip to the nearby Ponsonby Central we settled in for some Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine and Gin and tonics in the library with Sarah who really is an amazing host and an asset to the company.

The next morning we awoke to the In-room breakfast served in bed (freshly squeezed orange juice, barista coffee, pancakes, bacon, granola, fruit, croissants)

We’re excited to see such an amazing, bespoke boutique hotel opening up in Ponsonby and look forward to spending another staycation there in the near future.

Thank you fablehotelsandresorts for a perfect stay and can’t wait to see your future projects.

Auckland is a fucking vibe. This city is continuously blowing my mind with all it has to offer. Constantly feeding my appetite for adventure; (and my actual appetite 😂), there is an abundance of fun things to do and see. So happy to call this place home ❤️🌃

Because no matter how hard it is right now with lockdowns looming, restrictions and all the other good stuff life throws at you!⁣

SOON you will be looking back and realising that all the hard work you are putting in right now has made you stronger! ⁣

It doesn’t always happen over night! ⁣

But being able to cope with those uncomfortable times will make it all the more satisfying when you pop out the other side!⁣

Don’t stop and think move and conquer 🔥⁣

P.s couldn’t resist some decent cheeky lighting making me look remotely a bit tanned 😂

HUGE congratulations to our brand new Auckland Central MP chloe.swarbrick 💚💚💚
We were so impressed by Chlöe’s warmth, intelligence and realness when we filmed our pre-election interviews with her, Helen and Emma. We couldn’t be more excited for what she’ll bring to our electorate!

One of the best things about lockdown has been exploring the city of Auckland without traffic. Places we have never been dog walking before (but are so close to us) simply because there’s usually too many cars/ people. It has been such a privilege to get this time here to wander the city and truly appreciate its beauty ❤️ bellecooper_photo .

Context and materials informed the renovation of this Edwardian villa in one of Ponsonby’s best-known heritage avenues. Situated at the head of a row of same-styled houses, the property overlooks the backs of heritage commercial buildings, with their collage of brick outbuildings and additions. See more of this design by maud.studio at the link in bio. ⁠
