If you’re looking for a great way to keep the family busy over the weekend, Hobsonville Point offers plenty to see, do and discover.

The perfect starting point is the bustling Hobsonville Point Farmers’ Market, which runs every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 1pm. Here you can sample artisan food, enjoy live music and stock up on gourmet meats and fresh, locally grown produce.

From the markets, take a walk along the refurbished Hobsonville Wharf, which features eye-catching panels depicting local history and wildlife. At the end of the wharf you’ll find a photo-worthy Virginia King sculpture inspired by traditional Māori hīnaki (eel traps). If the tide is in, enjoy a spot of fishing or launch your kayak from the boat ramp.

If the kids have energy to burn from those tasty market treats, head to the nature-inspired playground on Buckley Avenue or enjoy a walk along the Hobsonville Point Coastal Walkway. The walkway is cycle-friendly, so bring along your own bikes or hire a rental bike at the wharf.
