Westmere is a residential suburb of Auckland, New Zealand, governed by the Auckland Council.
The suburb was formerly a working-class community with some state houses; mainly private housing from the 1920s housing development. It is well-known for its bungalow architecture in the Californian style. With substantial regeneration, it is now a highly sought-after residential venue.
Westmere is roughly divided by Garnet Road and is bordered to the north by Coxs Bay and to the south and west by the green belt that runs from Western Springs, the Auckland Zoo, and Western Springs College.
Westmere North’s statistical area is significantly smaller than the suburb, which stretches into Westmere South-Western Springs’ statistical area. According to the 2018 New Zealand census, it had a population of 2,343 people and 756 households.
Westmere School is a contributing primary school, and Pasadena Intermediate School in Point Chevalier is easily accessible by walking or cycling for students transitioning from primary to secondary school.
Western Springs College, Avondale College, Mount Albert Grammar School, Marist College, St Mary’s College, St Peter’s College, and St Paul’s College are nearby secondary schools. Some students from Westmere High School travel to Northcote College on the North Shore.
