Discover one of the North Island’s unique and relatively unexplored destinations, in and around the Mighty Waikato.
With its lush fertile farmland, quiet rustic rural towns, rugged western coastline of Port Waikato to Awhitu (Manukau Heads), the scenic seabird coastline of the Manukau and Firth of Thames, plus our rich history and culture, Franklin has so much to offer domestic and international travellers.

Situated close to the junctions of State Highway 1 and 2, 45 min from Auckland International Airport, this area provides the perfect place to start or finish your New Zealand journey. Franklin particularly appeals to the young to mature traveller, who seeks adventure, away from the crowds.
