The Airfields story
In 1924 Hobsonville was chosen by the government as a site for both land and sea-based aviation. The RNZAF established its home on Hobsonville point in 1929.
Catalina Bay was constructed as a ‘wet apron’ where flying boats could roll up onto the land, while the level farmland nearby was chosen for conventional aircraft. The base became dotted with barracks, houses and hangars, intersected by roads and grass landing strips.
Airfields Quarters sit on these very landing strips. They were used primarily by military aircraft whole names are celebrated in the street names of Hobsonville Point – de Havilland, Harvard, Meteor – and the names we have given to our different types of dwellings.
