Kia Ora from Multicultural Whangarei

We are coordinating the Whangarei Newcomers Network. My name is Justine Macatangay and I arrived in New Zealand a year and a half ago from the Philippines.

Through this network, we will help you with settlement support information, immigration advice, invitation to monthly activities, workshops, as well as connecting you to other services and people in Whangarei.

We aim to keep you updated through this page, as well as through our Facebook page  www.facebook.com/multiculturalwhangarei/

Please do connect with us through email [email protected] or by phone to 09 430-0571.
