Remuera is a residential suburban area within Auckland city, in the North Island of New Zealand. It is located four kilometres to the southeast of the city centre. According to the 2001 census, Remuera has a population of 6,324.

The suburb extends from Hobson Bay and the Orakei Basin (two arms of the Waitemata Harbour to the north and east, to the main thoroughfare of State Highway 1 in the southwest. It is surrounded by the suburbs of Newmarket, Greenlane and Meadowbank.

Traditionally occupied by the higher-income bracket, especially on its "Northern Slopes" (a term that refers to the part of Remuera north of Remuera Road) the suburb has become regarded as the stereotypical retreat of the rich in popular New Zealand thought, and is therefore used as a name to describe this income group - usually in disparaging tones. The term 'Remuera tractor', for example, is a common nickname for upmarket SUV vehicles. Remuera is home to many well known New Zealanders including Paul Holmes and the late Sir Edmund Hillary.
