An Attraction with a Dash of Sweetness – Chelsea Sugar Refinery

Auckland, the largest urban area in New Zealand, is a place with many exciting features. Serving as the hub of New Zealand’s economy, Auckland offers an experience which intertwines culture and fun to provide something truly unique. Known for its rich culture and lifestyle, beautiful natural parks and reserves, and many exciting leisure attractions, Auckland is also popular amongst tourists as well.
Of the many attractions Auckland has to offer, one which is sure to impart you with a rather “sweet” memory is the Chelsea Sugar Refinery. Located in Birkenhead, the Chelsea Sugar Refinery has stood as an iconic landmark in New Zealand since 1884. Having grown into New Zealand’s main producer of sugar products, this refinery today stands as one of the most successful and community friendly businesses, which have opened the doors of its estate to the public.
Having gone through several ups and downs and emerged triumphant, the Chelsea Sugar Refinery today stands as one of the most iconic structures of Auckland. Spreading over 54 hectares, the estates of this refinery have transformed into one of the most beautiful privately owned parks in the area and are open to the public. Since as early as 1901 the estates and surroundings of the refinery were beautified, which has resulted in the creation of a peaceful and serene park. One can witness several old features of the refinery such as Regenerating Forests and Water Supply Lakes used back in the olden days. The walkways of this beautiful park are also connected to the Chatswood Reserve and the Kauri Point Centennial Park as well. This park is also home to several exotic and native species of flora and fauna, and four fresh water pools with a variety of marine-life. The walkways of this park are frequently used by joggers, dog-walkers, and families who visit the park to absorb its beauty and relax for a while. So take a break by visiting Chelsea Sugar Refinery and be mesmerized by its serenity and beauty.
