Northcote is a suburb of North Shore, one of several cities in the Auckland metropolitan area in northern New Zealand. It is located on the north shore of the Waitemata Harbour, four kilometres northwest of the Auckland city centre.
The suburb, which includes the peninsula of Northcote Point, includes the northern approaches to the Auckland Harbour Bridge. It is surrounded by the suburbs of Birkenhead, Hillcrest, and Takapuna to the west and north, and the waters of Shoal Bay, an arm of the Waitemata, to the south and east. State Highway 1 stretches along the waterfront of Shoal Bay, heading north from the bridge towards Albany.
