Franklin District; your ultimate and unique destination -
If a district is measured by its range of experiences, then Franklin is the ultimate lifestyle destination combining relaxed country lifestyles with savvy city style, all just a short drive, south of Auckland or north of Hamilton.
The Franklin area, identified by its lush boundaries, 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, 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 April each year.
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.
