The Matakana Community Group is an Incorporated Society with a charitable status. Our Group is involved in a wide range of community activities including town planning matters that affect the future of Matakana and its environs, traffic management issues, community events and community projects and we work hard at engaging constructively with Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and Local Community Board representatives. The MCG encourages members to come along to a meeting with ideas for projects that they see a need for in the community.
Matakana Village is in the heart of a diverse wider area that includes Mt Tamahunga, Rodney’s highest landmark clad in ecologically significant native forest, Goat Island, a world renowned marine reserve, Tawharanui Regional Park, and pristine beaches, harbours and estuaries. The village is home to the acclaimed Matakana Farmers’ Market and the Matakana Cinemas which were voted the best independent cinema in New Zealand in a recent on-line poll. In the neighbouring area there are opportunities to enjoy high quality local food and wines in restaurants, cafes and wineries.

Our Story The Matakana Community Group has evolved from the original Matakana Structure Plan group, formed about 10years ago. The first project was the Matakana to Omaha Cycle and Walking track that was officially opened in 2013. Since then the MCG has worked alongside Auckland Council, Local Rodney Board, and Auckland Transport in initiating and following through to completion a number of key projects in Matakana.
We would like to give a huge thankyou to our sponsors for their very generous donations and support.
