Situated on the southern tip of Whangarei Harbour, Marsden Point and the greater Marsden Point area is one of the fastest growing regions in New Zealand. Blessed with a natural deep water port and easy access to Auckland via the state highway network the region has a high level of vacant industrial-zoned land and infrastructure capacity to accommodate industrial and processing sectors. Industry leaders including Refining NZ (New Zealand's only oil refinery), Northport (New Zealand's northern most multi purpose port) and Carter Holt Harvey's LVL Plant are but a few who have already chosen Marsden Point as their home. If you are a new or established business looking to relocate, there has never been a better time to get a foot in the door. Marsden Maritime is one of the biggest land holders on The Point, with 185ha of leasehold land available, 25ha of which is zoned Business 2 Light and the balance as Business 4 Heavy and Port Zone.
