From our magical Sunset and Pohutukawa Coasts and iconic historic Lighthouse, to the sounds of racing at Hampton Downs - the far southern playground of Auckland and northern playground of the Waikato - WE ARE Franklin Country. This is the ultimate destination combining relaxed country lifestyles with savvy city style.
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.
The main town of 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.
