A much-loved part of Tāmaki, the Derna Tobruk neighbourhood is now being readied for future generations. As part of the Tāmaki regeneration programme, Derna Tobruk’s streets and underground infrastructure are being upgraded, and its green spaces are being restored and renovated to provide plenty of space to play.

Over one hundred beautiful, high-quality homes will be built here by mid-2022, including homes for sale on the open market, affordable homes reserved for those with a connection to Tāmaki, and state homes. Half of the houses are already completed and a connected, thriving community is taking shape.

Tāmaki is one of the greenest areas of Auckland, and the Derna Tobruk neighbourhood is one of the greenest parts within it. Wrapped by three nature reserves, this peaceful pocket of Panmure runs along the edge of the Tāmaki River, and borders Sommerville School and Tāmaki Primary School. With walking paths, cycleways, bus routes and train stations all close by, it’s easy to leave the car at home here and explore everything the area has to offer. Come and take a look around.
