Karaka Area Information

By: Karaka Lakes  06-Dec-2011

As a development, Karaka Lakes has the advantages of being adjacent to the Southern Motorway (State Highway 1) access into, and away from, Auckland (approx 27 km to the CBD) and Manukau (approximately 10 km to the Town Centre).

Thanks to new infrastructure investment, getting to and from Auckland International Airport (approximately 18 km away) and beyond will become significantly easier. As a result, many companies are starting to locate their premises in and around new industrial parks in Manukau and Airport Oaks. Highbrook is another fast growing commercial area easily accessed from Karaka Lakes.

More about Papakura:

Papakura District Council is one of 59 District Councils in New Zealand and one of seven territorial local authorities covering the greater Auckland region.

Situated strategically 32km south of Auckland city, Papakura is in the unique position of being bordered on its north side by the greater Auckland suburbs, and on the south by some of the most striking countryside within New Zealand. Papakura's southern gateway function is emphasised by its position between the Harbour and the Hunua ranges.

The size of the District is 126 sq km (or 12,600ha) with a diverse physical environment which includes forest covered Hunua foothills, the rolling flat plains where agricultural and horticultural activities predominate, and the urban area abutting the Manukau Harbour and Auckland-Hamilton motorway.
