About Titirangi:

Titirangi is characterised by houses built within the native bush of the Waitakere Ranges. Many are of unusual design or are raised on poles to avoid the damp. The Waitakere Ranges lie on the west coast in the path of the prevailing winds from the Tasman and consequently attract a high rainfall. The native bush is home to many native birds, such as the Fantail, Tui, Kereru or Wood Pigeon, Morepork and White-eye. The landscape of Titirangi ranges from Titirangi Beach on the Manukau Harbour to 400 metre high parts of the Waitakere Ranges.

For a long time the area had a reputation for bohemianism. A number of well known New Zealand musicians, artists, writers and potters currently live or have lived in the area, including singer/songwriter Tim Finn (who wrote the song I Hope I Never there), actress Alma Evans-Freake, author Maurice Shadbolt, painters Colin McCahon (whose house is preserved as a museum) and Bibi Asgher, photographers Brian Brake and Peter Evans, poet John Caselberg and potter Len Castle. An active local theatre, art gallery and radio station are based in historic Lopdell House. Lopdell House is West Auckland's Regional Art Gallery, located in Titirangi Village, is a great place to explore New Zealand art. Many short walks or tramps in the Waitakeres start from Titirangi, and maps and advice can be found at the nearby Arataki Visitor Centre.

Titirangi has a doctors' surgery, dental clinic, primary school, kindergarten, play centre, library , supermarket, fire station, war memorial hall, theatre, arts andamp; crafts shop, art gallery, garden centre, community halls, two banks, post office, three restaurants, four caf?s, a wine shop and three takeaways.

Titirangi is bordered to the south by Manukau Harbour, to the west and north west by the rest of the Waitakere Ranges' native bush clad hills consisting of the large Centennial Memorial Park and water catchment areas which supply much of Auckland's water. The main road into the Waitakeres, the Scenic Drive, begins in Titirangi. To the east and north are a number of more urban suburbs. For many New Zealanders, the name Titirangi is associated with Auckland's best-known golf course, the Titirangi Golf Course. The course is actually located on the border of the nearby suburbs of New Lynn and Green Bay. Other suburbs surrounding Titirangi include Waima, Konini, Glen Eden, Woodlands Park, Laingholm and Waiatarua.

Titirangi means long streaks of cloud in the sky, but this is often given as fringe of heaven.
