Waima is an Auckland suburb.

It is under the local governance of the Auckland City Council, and together with Woodlands Park had a population of 2,433 in the 2013 New Zealand census, an increase of 69 since 2006.[1]

The majority of this modest population is clustered around the comparatively prominent Waima superette, situated just off the main arterial road Woodlands Park Road, on such streets as Waima Crescent, Hollywood Avenue, Boylan Road and Rimutaka Place; the central "hub" could be considered Waima reserve, which consists of various public amenities such as a playground, basketball court, toilets and a sport field.

To the North West, Waima is bordered by popular walking track and Lower Nihotipu Reservoir pipeline route "Exhibition Drive". Two water treatment stations and holding tanks service Auckland city's water supply from locations on Woodlands Park Road. Waima extends East to Tainui Road and the Auckland Centennial Memorial Park and the cul de sac of Rimutaka place represents Waima's Southernmost point.

Most young residents attend nearby Woodlands Park Primary School or Titirangi Primary School and Glen Eden Intermediate school; the local State secondary schools are Green Bay High School, Kelston Boys High School and Kelston Girls High School. Catholic students usually commute by bus, or train from Glen Eden or New Lynn to Marist College (girls) or St Peter's College (boys).
