Papakura offers you a perfect blend of country and town.
Perched on the edge of the greater Auckland metropolitan area, Papakura’s town centre is a diverse and charming environment in which to shop, eat, work or socialise. With a mix of retail, professional and business support services, the town centre brings everything you need together for a convenient and exciting experience.
The green open spaces of our wonderful parks are a perfect haven for families and children and the playgrounds are a fun and safe diversion for the younger ones. What’s more, getting to and from the town centre is simple, quick and convenient by rail, bus or private car.
So for everything you need to know about Papakura’s busy town centre and all the things that make this the heart of our district, look no further!
They’ll be toasted at the Papakura Sports Awards, the first of which will be held at the Papakura RSA on the 13th of September 2015.

Fourteen categories which range from sportsman and sportswoman of the year for seniors and juniors to an innovation award that will recognise the significant contribution by a sports organisation towards community engagement, increased participation in sports or sport development opportunities.
The Papakura Local Board is behind the awards.

The Saturday Market on Broadway is on every Saturday from 8.30 am to 1.00 pm in Broadway Papakura. The Market on Broadway offers a selection of food, health, beauty, clothing, arts and gifts, and entertainment for the whole family.
Even better, after you have visited the Market on Broadway – remember the rest of Papakura is open, all our wonderful shops and cafes etc for you to do and do the rest of your shopping while you are in town.
We’re really keen to talk to local people or groups who are interested in performing at the Market – entertainment just makes the whole day so much more interesting. We’ll be hosting one fundraising stall each week. If you are part of a group that would like to be part of this contact us on the email below.
