Community Facilities and Recreation

Pukehina Community Hall

The Pukehina Community Hall is a functional facility suitable for indoor sporting activities, community meetings, and family events, such as weddings, anniversaries and special birthdays.
At present the Hall is out of action due to weather tightness issues. The Committee have been working with WBOPDC on a resolution to this and plans are underway to repair the damage so we can reopen.

Once re-opened the Hall will be available for hire at very reasonable rates.  We would like to operate an online booking system with a booking contract and small bond, which would go back into management costs and maintenance of the hall, or could be redistributed to other community projects.

Community Notice Board

We have two community noticeboards which are available free of charge for community related notices.

One is located on the Community Hall and the other is a mobile sign popped out on the road opposite The Pukehina Store. Contact if you’d like to share a notice or event with the community.

Fishing Club

The Pukehina Fishing Club’s primary purpose is to foster fellowship among the fishing fraternity of the Pukehina Beach community.

This is a small, active and friendly club focused on family fishing activities and tournaments throughout the year. Members welcomed. Website:

Midway Park: Tennis Courts, Skate ramp, Wetland walk & Bike track

Midway Park is a great park and reserve area for whānau and community to enjoy for sport and recreation.

There is a court area with one tennis net set up permanently, along with small skate ramp features that people are welcome to move round and create their own runs.
