The Franklin district is strongly defined by urban and rural areas, outstanding natural landscapes and open green spaces.
Franklin is also regarded as both a desirable and accessible ‘lifestyle’ destination for those seeking an alternative to city living. Traditionally the Franklin area has supplied the Auckland region with fresh produce and today market gardens still remain a feature of the district’s landscapes providing an appealing backdrop to the building developments that are taking place within the area.
As one of New Zealand’s fastest growing regions, Franklin offers not only excellent residential options and recreational opportunities, but also access to the goods and services available in much larger centres.
Families relocating to Franklin are attracted by the benefits that country living provides such as more space and larger sections while at the same time recognizing that Auckland and its attractions is just 45 minutes away by motorway.
The district is also home to a wide number of events both motor sport and art, horse racing and vintage to the traditional A & P show, equestrian events, Antiques and Collectable Shows and, on a weekly basis, the Franklin Country Markets at Pukekohe and Pokeno. With so much to offer, it is easy to see why Franklin Country is fast becoming the lifestyle destination of choice.
