- your ultimate and unique destination -
Franklin is the ultimate destination combining relaxed country lifestyles with savvy city style, just a short drive, south of Auckland or north of Hamilton.
The Franklin region, features olive groves, vineyards and market gardens, while providing a unique opportunity to taste locally grown and produced foods and wines, many of which are featured on menus around the district, but is not defined by boundaries.
Our main town - Pukekohe, is once again the home of V8 motor racing , with the smell of race fuel adding to the regions excitement in November.
Our diversity is exceptional, ranging from wine tasting, kayaking, fishing, archery, 4WD to enjoying the local markets, cafes and boutique - style shopping, plus our own limestone glow-worm cave and Vintage Railway.
