The site was purchased in the middle of XIX century by Bishop Pompllier and developed. I find it a really interesting example of XIX century colonial architecture.

We moved from Greenlane in Auckland to Ponsonby 8 years ago. It was part of our downsizing/no more kids at home plan. Well we downsized alright but the other side of the equation didn't work!! We absolutely love living in Ponsonby - vibrant and eclectic mix of cafes, restaurants, shops and two great food outlets in Farro Fresh and Nosh.... More

Ponsonby is a lively area full of lovely boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. The shopping is not really for the budget friendly but window shopping is always free though you can often get bargains if the Ponsonby market is on. You can get a great brunch at cafe Thirty Nine and for cheaper eats Ponsonby Food Court and Renkon (Japanese... More

Ponsonby International Food Court (upstairs, 106 Ponsonby Road) is a fav place for locals to have a cheap and tasty eat out. I lived in Auckland for 15 years and locals debate their favourite stall/s and dishes all the time. I really like the Cari Bo (I have probably spelt that wrong) from the Vietnamese place, and my partner loves... More

Places to eat and shop all along the street. Most have a hipster/ vintage/ quirky feel that gives this area a lively character.

Home to some of the most wonderful cafes and fashion boutiques in Auckland. Beautiful during the day or at night, and is close to Auckland CBD as you can catch an inner link bus from the city to Ponsonby. Quite posh and expensive, but well worth visiting regardless.
