Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...

At 8 pence a day on top of a small deposit, a Surfdale section was also promoted as a sound investment – so close to downtown Auckland that “values must go up and up and up”.

Well, they weren't wrong there.

Today, Waiheke Island brings to mind sunny vineyards and beachy weekend getaways. The image of Waiheke as an “island paradise” has its origins in 1920s marketing, but the island has long been desirable even as its character has changed over the past centuries.

As we go into the long weekend and begin to venture further afield again, why not have a read of how Waiheke came to be the place it is today, in this blog about its recent history by our Project Curator, Jane Groufsky.

Things at Acacia Cove Village are slowly but surely returning to “normal”.

There were many changes in Acacia Cove Village since the lock-down, as it was our priority to keep everyone safe. We even set up a little “shop” so our residents didn’t have to go out shopping.

I am sure we are all very grateful to be able to move around more freely and join in some of the activities Acacia Cove has to offer. It can be a bit tricky to keep the numbers to 10 or less, and social distancing is hard to do.

However, after some brainstorming, we came up with and implemented some basic strategies to help everyone to adhere to the rules.

From the village manager, Bruce Cullington, staff and Acacia Cove Residents, we would like to wish you well, and thank you for the part you played to keep our community safe.
