About Au Tau town

It is a small town with mesmerizing sceneries and can be the perfect destination for holidays. Just because of fewer transportation options, people cannot travel there easily and that's how Au Tau is losing its charm. But not anymore! The station built by Northern link will re-energise the entire locality and help tourists to visit this amazing town located in a mountain col in eastern Yuen Long.

Have you ever imagined what the name even means and what is the history of that place? Let's unleash the meaning of Au Tau. It is the geographical location of a mountain col. Back in the ancient period, this town was the boundary between Yuen Long and Kam Tin. Here, tourists can visit Hung Mo Kiu and Ko Path. Hung Mo Kiu is the middle stream of the Kam Tin River. It is actually an iron bridge made by British troops and Ko Path is located just below it.

This countryside town is blessed with amazing scenery and friendly people. Here are a few schools located and one of those is Au Tau secondary school which has a history spanning over a century. It still carries the history of the British colonial period.

Why Au Tau station?

When we will complete building the station in that area, the overall infrastructure will improve and it will boost the lives of people living there and also the people within the territory and outside will have an amazing countryside destination for their holidays along with good connectivity options.

The people of the town now have to go through hustle and bustle to reach the main city.

History and origin of the name

The Chinese characters for Au Tau mean the geographic location of a mountain col. In ancient times, Au Tau was the boundary between Yuen Long and Kam Tin, and it is now the name of the area near the boundary.


Hung Mo Kiu and Ko Po Path

Hung Mo Kiu traverses the middle stream of the Kam Tin River. It was initially a temporary iron bridge built by British troops stationed in Hong Kong, whom the villagers later referred to as "Hung Mo Guai" i.e. "red-haired ghosts". Hence, Hung Mo Kiu i.e. "bridge of the red-haired ghosts" was named after it. Ko Po Path is located below Hung Mo Kiu.

This photo shows the viaduct of Tuen Ma Line, which is located near Hung Mo Kiu, traversing Kam Tin River and Ko Po Path.


History of Au Tau Primary and Secondary School

Founded in 1904, Yuen Long Government Primary School has a history spanning over a century. Originally built in a style with red bricks, the exterior walls have now been covered in white paint. Yuen Long Public Secondary School was established in 1949 and funded by the local gentry of Yuen Long, it is the oldest secondary school in the New Territories. The original site of Yuen Long Public Secondary School was formerly the Yuen Long Au Tau Police Station. It was built during the British colonial period with a large number of British troops stationed, which has served as the symbol of taking over the New Territories on behalf of the United Kingdom. Currently, it is the site of the Tung Hwa Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) C Y Ma Memorial College.
