Leigh Business Community

Just an hour north of Auckland – Leigh is the place to be!

Our group recently held their AGM and elected a new enthusiastic committee. Our aim is to bring more visitors to the Leigh area. Many visitors have commented that they wish they could have stayed longer to take in our beautiful scenery, beaches, birds, walks and marine life. There are plenty of options for staying in the area with three motor camps, numerous bed and breakfast rooms and self-contained accommodations.

Leigh Coastal Walks Event

Held Anzac Weekend 2014

Organised by the Leigh Business Commmunity this guided walk event was a huge success with over 140 participants. The walks were organised to raise awareness of Leigh’s beautiful coastline and attract visitors to the area. There were 9 groups and 8 different guided walks which gave a good variety to choose from. Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this event a success.
