Waioneke is a locality on the South Head peninsula of the Kaipara Harbour, in the Rodney District of New Zealand. Parakai is 22 km to the south-east, and the road continues another 14 km to the north-west. Rangitira Beach and Woodhill Forest are to the west, and Omokoiti Flats and the southern Kaipara Harbour are to the east.
A Māori pa existed at Waioneke prior to European settlement of the area. The Waioneke block was taken up in 1868 by Daniel Pollen (who later became Premier of New Zealand) and William Spearman Young, to graze cattle.
A Waioneke Road Board was formed after 1884, and was responsible for forming and maintaining roads over much of the South Head peninsula. The board was dissolved by 1899.
Deer farming began in the area in the 1970s, and a processing plant was built in Waioneke.
Waioneke School is a coeducational full primary (years 1-8) school with a decile rating of 7 and a roll of 98 (Dec 2013) . The school traces its origins to Mairetahi School, established in 1928. The school moved to its present site and took its current name in 1938.
