Halcombe and its community.
Halcombe is situated 12 km north west of Feilding, and 4 km east of the Rangitikei River, in the Manawatu region of New Zealand. Once the main railway junction in the central North Island and destined to grow into a major township before development shifted to Palmerston North, today Halcombe is a small but thriving rural settlement with over 500 residents. Included in the wider Halcombe district are the communities of Stanway, Tokorangi, and Kakariki.
Central to the village area is the historic war memorial, a tavern, cafe, Memorial Hall, public domain, playground, volunteer Fire and Emergency brigade, Taumata o te Ra Marae, Halcombe Playcentre, and Halcombe School.
The surrounding farmland is predominately used for a variety of livestock farming and cropping, with an increasing number of lifestyle blocks.
The Halcombe community is strong and growing. Residents are drawn to the rural lifestyle and "village atmosphere" of Halcombe and enjoy living in this vibrant, caring community. Halcombe gives residents the benefit of a rural lifestyle with an easy commute to Feilding, Palmerston North and Ohakea.
