Koru Hub is a creative, wellbeing centre and gift shop

Island Bay and the surrounding communities have supported Koru hub for the past 16 years and it is a well-loved local identity. We are delighted to be its kaitiaki as it continues to grow and change.

Emma is a counsellor and supports wellbeing and creativity. She has been renting a room at Koru Hub for five years. Alan, who is a local photographer, is committed to the environment and to the community. Together we are creating a unique space. We are keeping the heart and soul of Koru Hub and developing it as a creative wellbeing centre.

We have lots of exciting ideas. Drop in,  see the changes that are happening, and the energy that is building. We’d love to see you.

Building’s History

We love this photo. It shows this building has always been at the centre of Island Bay. The buildings was originally used as the Island Bay Post Office! Scouts were doing good deeds outside our doors in 1956.
