Ellerslie Racecourse

As Auckland’s premier horse racing venue, Ellerslie Racecourse plays host to many events throughout the year.

From the Boxing Day & New Year’s Day Races to Auckland Cup Week and the annual Urban Polo Tournament, there are endless opportunities to get dressed up and socialise.

Local cafes, bars and restaurants

Ellerslie’s locals often say they’ve got the best dining options in the city – and we agree.

‘Haru Sushi’, ‘Mexico’ and ‘Pastrami & Rye’ are just a few spots to choose from if you’re planning to dine out in Ellerslie.

There are also plenty of cafes and, if you’re keen on an evening out, Union Post, Charlie Baxters and Doolan Brothers all guarantee a great night.

Village High Street

Ellerslie is one of Auckland’s oldest suburbs, with a friendly community that’s been more than 150 years in the making.

The village features a vibrant high street that is dotted with a variety of speciality stores and boutiques, along with a butcher, convenience store and fuel station.

Ellerslie Night Market

The Ellerslie Night Market happens once a month at the Ellerslie War Memorial and offers fun for every age group.

Featuring some of Auckland’s best food vendors, it’s a great place to meet friends for a casual bite to eat. After dinner, browse an array of artwork, jewellery, fresh produce and much more.

Transport options to Auckland City

Ellerslie offers easy access to the city centre.

Trains run regularly from a station located in the heart of the village, and there are bus stops located on both the main and surrounding streets.

For those needing to travel by car, Auckland’s main motorway is easily accessed from one of two nearby onramps.
