North Harbour is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. It is located 12 kilometres north of the city centre, to the south of the suburb of Albany, close to the northern edge of the city.

The name "North Harbour" also has a more general usage referring to all those parts of the Auckland conurbation sited to the north of the Waitematā Harbour, which includes the entirety of the former North Shore City (including Hibiscus Coast), plus parts of the former Waitakere City. The name thus applied finds its most common usage when referring to the North Harbour rugby team, which plays in the ITM Cup.
