More info about Auckland Park

Sandwiched between the sprawling premises of the country’s only national multi-media broadcaster and a university campus, Auckland Park in Johannesburg is an established suburb favoured by those involved in the arts and entertainment industry and university educators and their students.

Auckland Park is one of the older Johannesburg suburbs once used as a country retreat for the wealthy of which many architectural gems are still visible. The suburb is home to a number of academic institutions and the headquarters of media corporates. The lively restaurant scene and Auckland Park’s convenient location – it is practically at a junction point leading to all areas around Johannesburg – makes it an attractive urban living space. However, the demand for housing is great as residents tend to stay put…

The original farm owner named the suburb after his hometown of Auckland in New Zealand.
