About Us

The Whangarei Malayalee Association is a registered Inc. Society serving the needs of the Malayalee Community (People who hail from Kerala, the southernmost state of Kerala, India) and the wider community here. Although gatherings of the community started as early as 2008, it was only in 2016 that the group was formally registered into a society. Our community in Whangarei is growing at a steady pace, with the majority working in the Whangarei hospital and Healthcare sectors. We aim to provide a platform for the Malayalees to promote Social, cultural, charitable, educational, and literary activities and to organize cooperative and charitable activities in the general interest and well-being of the Malayalees in Whangarei and with the wider community here.

Mayor's message

Benvenuto, haere mai and welcome! On behalf of the residents, businesses, and community of Whangārei District, I offer a warm and heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you. As the Mayor of this wonderful district, it fills me with immense pride to see the many vibrant cultures that now call Whangārei home. We are a community that celebrates our differences, with a commitment to inclusivity that can be seen in the many programs, initiatives, and support networks to be found within our District. It is my hope that every individual feels valued and welcomed, and I encourage you to explore, meet your neighbours, join local clubs, and weave yourself into the tapestry of our District. 

Once again, welcome to Whangārei District!

Namaskaram നമസ്കാരം
It is great to see the Malayali roots and culture alive and well in Whangārei. The Whangarei Malayalee Association helps people stay connected to their art, culture, language, literature, food and drink, festivals and more. It also offers a chance for people outside the Malayali culture to look into all it has to offer. I am sure this website will be great success for the Whangarei Malayalee Association I wish you every success.
