Pukekohe

Pukekohe The Heart of Franklin

Pukekohe - Click for larger imageAs New Zealand's fastest growing secondary urban area, Pukekohe offers not only excellent residential options and recreational opportunities, but also access to the goods and services available in much larger centres.

Pukekohe is the largest town in Franklin combining city savvy with country charm, with boutique-style shopping in its main street and a busy central business district. While Franklin's aspect may be predominantly rural this is far from the case as regards facilities and services with shoppers finding a retail mecca in Pukekohe's tiled town centre providing everything from sporting goods and sewing shops, banks and book stores, home wares, cafes and restaurants to fashion and furniture.

 Pukekohe also has  bus and rail services, enabling our people to travel to and from the Auckland CBD and surrounds.

NOTE: The town is hoping for an improved rail service and an online petition has been set up. For those interested in learning more, this link will take you to the site.
