Remuera is one of the older suburbs of Auckland, and the commercial district dates back to the early 1900's.  Download a Heritage Walk brochure or collect one from Remuera Library, 429 Remuera Road - a heritage building itself - and enjoy a self-guided tour of the history of Remuera.

Just around the corner from the Library is Cotter House, one of the oldest houses in Auckland built c1848 - beautifully preserved, it is now a private luxury retreat.  Formerly the council stables, the Village Green dates back to 1915 and the old Remuera Post Office was built in 1914.  Feel a sense of history as you wander through Remuera, and take time to enjoy the heritage of this established neighbourhood over coffee or lunch.  Some buildings are marked with a Historical Place plaque - scan the QR code to uncover an even richer history of the area.
