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!
