The heart of Rod­ney and the Hibis­cus Coast beats in Orewa – the nerve cen­tre of Rod­ney’s busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties. It is head of­fice for the Rod­ney Dis­trict Coun­cil, and the home of Rod­ney’s big­gest sin­gle res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment, the Nau­tilus. It is also a pop­u­lar hol­i­day re­sort and has one of the finest beaches in New Zealand. The beach ex­tends along the length of the town, pro­vid­ing a broad, sandy prom­e­nade at low tide. Ex­ten­sive grassy re­serves and a chil­dren’s play­ground border the beach. The town cen­tre has a great variety of shops and ser­vices, and many new sub­di­vi­sions are spring­ing up as its bound­aries con­tinue to ex­tend into the sur­round­ing coun­try­side. Flat land at the cen­tre of town is pop­u­lar with young fam­i­lies and el­derly folk. A short dis­tance from the town cen­tre the land rises steeply, of­fer­ing homes won­der­ful views over­look­ing Orewa and the beach. The mo­tor­way, which presently stops at Orewa, brings North Auck­land within an easy 20-minute drive. Cen­trestage Theatre hosts many lo­cal and visit­ing artists and there is a great se­lec­tion of restau­rants and bars for en­ter­tain­ment. A num­ber of schools, from preschool to sec­ondary, are pro­vided in Orewa and Sil­verdale. Orewa is also close to the Whanga­paraoa Penin­sula, Wai­w­era and towns fur­ther north, mak­ing it an ideal shop­ping and com­mer­cial busi­ness cen­tre for res­i­dents in those ar­eas too.
