Ready to grow: identified as a future metropolitan centre in the Auckland Unitary Plan, Papakura offers much to people looking to work, live and play in south-east Auckland.
With a vibrant shopping centre, wide range of public transport options, new supermarkets and service businesses and booming real estate that includes a new wave of apartment developments under construction, the district is attracting people and businesses from all over Auckland.
Papakura is about the future: opportunity and lifestyle.
The green open spaces of our wonderful parks draw families and children and the playgrounds are a fun and safe diversion for the younger ones.
With a conveniently located transport hub at the edge of the business district, getting to and from the town centre is simple, quick and convenient by rail, bus or private car.
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!
