Here is a little information about each of our suburbs.
Khandallah is a quiet village nestled in the northern hills of Wellington. Home to some 8,500 people, living in 3,360 dwellings, the area has some real hidden gems.
Take a stroll down Ganges Rd to the restored town hall which has been the heart of
the community since 1902. You can get a decent cup of coffee there, relax at a day
spa, peruse an art gallery and have a cheeky vino in the sun at the local pub.
Overlooking the suburb is Mount Kaukau and Khandallah Park. The 30-metre
summer pool in Khandallah, has given countless which was earmarked for closure
by the Wellington City Council, keeps kids cool and gives them something to do in
the middle of suburbia, where its still safe to ride a bike.
Broadmeadows is bounded by the suburb of Johnsonville in the north, Burma Road and the railway line in the east, the suburb of Khandallah in the south, and the locality of Ohariu in the west.
It has a population of 1563 people, representing households as at the 2013 census.
The view from Broadmeadows is quite spectacular.
Located at the base of the hill are a couple of Wellington’s gems including the Kaiwharawhara Dog Park.
