Kumeu, West Auckland

About Kumeu:

Kumeū is a prosperous rural community in New Zealand, 25 km north-west of the centre of Auckland City.

Kumeu blends rich heritage with a picturesque landscape. The winemaking tradition of the area dates back to the 1940s, when families of Croatian descent opened the first wineries of Auckland.

Host to Auckland's oldest winery, Kumeu boasts award-winning restaurants, interesting galleries, and a range of specialty shops. Kumeu is a soothing mix of boutique wineries, orchards, and lush farmland.

History and Demographics

Originally, the district was settled by immigrants from the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, many of whom were part of traditional wine-growing families.

The population of Kumeu-Huapai was 3,432 in the 2018 New Zealand census. There were 1,110 households in the area.


The primary schools of the Huapai District School and the Matua Ngaru School, and the state-integrated Hare Krishna School, which is a composite school, serve Kumeu.

The majority of high-school students attend school in the nearby suburbs.

There is a few of you that are new here so I thought I would introduce myself ✨ ⠀

I am Lauren, a lover of allll things beauty, especially fake tan & makeup! I also love travel, adventures, wine, music and cars. ☀️ ⠀

I have two gorgeous tiny dogs, they are chihuahua x Maltese sisters. 🐶 I live in Auckland, north/west ish. It’s a little more rural out these ways, which I love 🐄⠀

I did my makeup training 8 years ago! And seriously where did the time go?! I have since added on hair styling & range of beauty services. Brow wax & tints, lash lifts & tints, brow henna, spray tans and gel polish. These services are available in my studio, in Huapai. I also enjoy getting to travel all over the place for hair & makeup bookings💄⠀ ⠀

I’m grateful that I still love what I do and for the amazing people I've met these last 8 years. Looking forward to events and weddings picking up again so I can help you all look & feel your absolute best 💃🥳💕

Throwback to 1st lockdown, a Wednesday, because I’m wearing all pink 😂 ⠀

This time round I’ve definitely found a little harder. Trying to be productive and not sleep in every morning, is actually really hard 🤷‍♀️😂 ⠀

Safe to say I’m really looking forward to getting back to a bit of normality next week and I can’t wait to get back to work and my wonderful clients! 💕⠀

Hope everyone is doing alright & if you’re struggling, please reach out to someone. Friends, family, helplines or I’m a pretty good listener if you need 💫⠀
Not long to go now pals ✨

🍓 Just me? I have this thing when picking fruit (and other inanimate objects) that they suddenly all have feelings and by me not picking them, I've of course hurt their feelings. I'm serious! So to offset this, I had Josh do most of the picking this time, while I soaked up the sun with my little babies 🙌🏻 Also, don't all the therapists stand up at once 😜 .
