Westlake is a suburb of the North Shore in New Zealand's Auckland urban area. It lies eight kilometres to the northwest of the Auckland CBD between the major suburbs of Milford and Glenfield. The name arises from its position on the western shoreline of Lake Pupuke.

Within Westlake are three secondary schools – Westlake Boys High School, Westlake Girls High School and Carmel College – and North Shore Hospital.
