List of towns in New Zealand

This is a list of towns in New Zealand. The term "town" has no current statutory meaning in New Zealand, the few "Town Districts" having been abolished in 1989 or earlier.

The list includes most urban areas in New Zealand. Those deemed urban areas by Statistics New Zealand are marked with an asterisk. Isolated towns, such as Ashburton and Levin, are usually parts of a local government "District" (which occasionally has the same name), but the rest, such as Wainuiomata, Pukerua Bay, and Port Chalmers, are within city council boundaries, and are often referred to as suburbs of their respective cities. Many were boroughs during most of the twentieth century, and some earlier.
