Marsden Point

Marsden Point, at the southern entrance to Whāngārei Harbour, is the site of New Zealand’s only oil refinery. It operated around the clock, 365 days a year, until its closure in 2022. Almost half the fuel output was carried by pipeline to Auckland. The rest was shipped around the country from the deep-water berth at the point.
