Wellsford is a town in the northern North Island of New Zealand. The town is the northernmost major settlement in the Auckland Region, and is 77 kilometres northwest of Auckland City.

Wellsford is located close to a narrowing of the North Auckland Peninsula caused by an arm of the Kaipara Harbour on the west coast extending inland for 20 kilometres from the body of the harbour, stretching to within 15 kilometres of the east (Pacific Ocean) coast.

Although the town's population is only 1,671 it is a major regional centre, being located at the junction of State Highways 1 and 16. Its location almost exactly halfway between Auckland and the northern city of Whangarei also makes it a more notable regional centre.
