Cruise the Kaipara Harbour, trace the history of Helensville


Helensville is situated at the Southern end of Kaipara Harbour. It was once Auckland’s trading and transfer centre. There were regular ferry services between Helensville and Dargaville. There was also a railway line between Helensville and Northland.

 Kaipara Harbour being the biggest inlet Harbour, had many ships going in and out of the every day and for more than 20 years. Now is the testing place for tidal turbine. If successful, there will be more than 200 turbine to be put there to generate power for us. Kaipara Harbour is really an interesting place. 90% of our Snippers originated from there.


CCET will take you to trace the history of Helensville and for a boat ride on the very windy river and Kaipara Harbour.
