Waitangirua is a suburb of Poriruamarker City approximately 22km north of Wellingtonmarker in New Zealandmarker.

Waitangirua was established during the 1960s, almost exclusively as a Government housing development for New Zealand's burgeoning working class immigrant population. As such the ethnic demographic of Waitangirua at the time of establishment comprised primarily of Pacific Island, Scottish, Indian, Irish, English and Chinese as well as Māori. Many of the original settling families still live in Waitangirua today.

The hilly suburb until the late 90s was almost semi-rural surrounded by farmland with Whitbymarker to the North East, Pauatahanui Inlet and Estuary further to the North, and the Belmont hills and Hutt Valley to the East.

The diverse multi-racial nature of Waitangirua makes for a colourful community dominated by a vibrant and exuberant youth culture.

Several scenes from the Taika Waititi movie Eagle vs Shark were shot on location in Waitangirua.
