Kohimarama

This middle of 'the bays' beach has a funky feel, more-so than the rest of the bays. It has a fantastic park, Madills Farm, where the local dog owners meet for a chat, whilst their pooches give them the run around!  Perched in a unique position it misses out on the tourist set and has a gentle, yet active, feel about it. Predominantly upper to middle class reside here and then tend to move from inner Eastern suburb to inner Eastern suburb.

Kohimarama Shopping
Although the area is mainly residential, it does however have a great group of shops that include a local takeaway, dairy, fantastic wine shop, beautican, superb bakery (I recommend the chicken pies!), a great green grocer, a great Italian restaurant and a selection of wonderful cafes for brekky and lunch.
