There’s always something happening in Ponsonby. Pop-up shops, restaurants and bars add to the excitement and draw the crowds.

The annual Auckland Pride Parade proudly celebrates the suburb’s vibrant Rainbow /LGBT community.  Come Christmas, Franklin Road draws admiring crowds from far and wide, as residents enthusiastically decorate their homes with the most spectacular lighting displays to kick off the festive season. Every week, there are a host of community events and classes. Live drawing, meditation, yoga, singing, open mic, dating, drama, jewellery – the list goes on.

Fine diners are spoilt for choice. The list begins with Orphans Kitchen, Sidart, SPQR, MooChowChow and Miss Moonshine’s. Casual dining favourites include the ever-evolving Street Food Collective, Boy & Bird, Freeman & Grey and Little Easy.

One element that sets Ponsonby apart and emulates the suburb’s confident style is Ponsonby Central, owned by prolific property developer Andy Davies. The complex has been transformed from a warehouse to an exceptional, world-class showcase of local organic produce, hospitality and homewares. Mindfully styled to give a rustic industrial feel, exposed brickwork, chandeliers and old sprinkler pipes as balustrades create an ambience to set off the bustling and fashionable crowds. Delectable dining and watering hole options here include Burger Burger, The Blue Breeze Inn and Bedford Soda & Liquor.

Ponsonby locals are passionate about health and wellbeing. There are many options for massages, spa treatments and acupuncture. Keep up the healthy theme with the full raw foods menu at Little Bird Unbakery or paleo offerings from Wilder and Hunt.

Fashion boutiques make window shopping a pleasure. Or step inside and enjoy the best of New Zealand design including Kate Sylvester, Juliette Hogan, Ruby and WORLD. Visit stores such as Superette and A Little Shop, or designer second-hand shop Tatty’s. There are bookstores aplenty too – the Dorothy Butler Children’s Bookshop, The Women’s Bookshop and mag nation to set you on your way.

Ponsonby has plenty of park life to enjoy. Western Park off Ponsonby Road has off-leash dog exercise areas, picnic tables, a playground and flying fox. Take time to notice the sculptures, including three pieces by John Radford, resembling ancient sunken ruins of old Auckland buildings. Western Park hosts Art in the Dark, New Zealand’s premier light festival where innovative artists from New Zealand and abroad light up the park in creative and glorious ways.

Western Park

Western Park

Cox’s Bay Reserve hosts many dog, child and art-friendly features, plus there’s a magnificent boardwalk. Another gem is Kelmarna Gardens’ nature trail – a self-guided path through managed organic gardens and paddocks, and linking with Cox’s Creek Walkway. Grey Lynn Park is also close by, home of the fabulous annual Grey Lynn Park Festival.

Local schools include Ponsonby Primary School, Richmond Road School and Ponsonby Intermediate School. For high school there’s Western Springs College, St Paul’s College, and St Mary’s College, Auckland’s oldest existing girls’ secondary school and one of New Zealand’s oldest schools. Opened by the Catholic Sisters of Mercy in 1850, alumni include many singers of international acclaim who studied under Dame Sister Mary Leo. Most notable are Dame Kiri Te Kawana, Mina Foley and Dame Malvina Major.  

Architecture

The Ponsonby of today began developing in the 1980s. It was seemingly transformed overnight and elevated to its upper-middle class status by the 2000s.

Ponsonby locals are proud of their heritage, and old architecture has been retained and given new life. Architectural styles generously scattered around include minimalist and modern, Italianate, Gothic, Classical or Renaissance, from the Edwardian baroque style of the 1912 Ponsonby Post Office designed by John Campbell, to the Neoclassical architecture of the 1886 Ponsonby Baptist Church. Allendale House is a stunning two-storey villa with a distinctive turret of Italianate style dating from the 1890s, now lovingly refurbished with a modern annex added. Nowhere do styles collide more than in the characteristic Ponsonby villas. They line the streets, each immaculately restored with individual and modern flair. Originally designed by builders, the villas are pragmatic in approach, some sporting Gothic pointed windows teamed with Italianate arch-style windows. The results looked good, worked and, considering their popularity to this day, could be considered a successful example of a cultural mix!

Ponsonby has retained its artistic and independent edge, proudly doing without a suburban mall and instead giving patronage to boutique businesses.

Ponsonby's History

Pre-European Maori were busy and industrious in the area, though aren't recorded to have ever settled here. They gathered flax at Cox’s Bay; camped, fished and traded in Freemans Bay (or Waiatarau), and relied on the various streams in the area for food and resources.

The English arrived and took up residence, but College Hill was too steep for the horses and carriages that brought supplies from the city. Their preferred route was along Karangahape Road to Franklin Road via Ponsonby Road. The area was named Dedwood after a farm on Shelly Beach Road, but changed in 1873 to reflect the main arterial route, Ponsonby Road. By the 1880s, horse buses were able to climb up College Hill. Shops opened in Three Lamps to service the prosperous families of St Mary’s and Herne Bays and the workers in cottages on College Hill and Grey Lynn. Thus the ridges of Ponsonby and Jervois Roads began their transformation from scrubland to a thriving village of middle-class enthusiasm that continued for several decades.

Things changed in the 1950s and 60s. Ponsonby lost its affluent status and rents plummeted due to an economic downturn, the construction of the Freemans Bay motorway, suburban sprawl, and “slum” clearances by the council. By the 1970s, new communities had moved in and established themselves – Bohemian artists, reformed prisoners, gays and lesbians, Maori, Pakeha, Chinese, Indian, Polynesian migrant workers and their families. It was rough, but residents described it as a village – everyone knew each other and kids could kick a ball around the streets. The glory days for one of New Zealand’s most infamous gig venues, the Gluepot, were also during this period. It closed in 1994 and its legendary status is a topic of its own. Safe to say, Ponsonby had a distinct culture that left an indelible mark. Life is very different here today, but the independent, vivacious, entrepreneurial spirit lives on.

Notable characters who have resided in Ponsonby over the years include bishops, brothel owners, prime ministers, activists, artists, performers, thinkers and dreamers. Prime ministers include Michael Joseph Savage, Peter Fraser, and Helen Clark – who flatted here with Judith Tizard.

The Ponsonby Community Centre has rooms named after two fabulously scandalous and notorious women of the past century – Flora MacKenzie and Freda Stark. Fighting for women’s rights on another front was Amey Daldy, a significant member of the Suffrage Movement. Vogel’s bread is enough of a New Zealand favourite to be personified, so it’s included in this list. It was first produced at 120-128 Ponsonby Road, in a bakery established in the 1940s by German Jewish refugee and Doctor of Philosophy Max Reizenstein.
