About Hauraki

The Hauraki District spans from the Kaiaua (Seabird) Coast along the reclaimed, rich dairy lands of the Hauraki Plains which border the Firth of Thames, and then onto the rugged Karangahake and Kaimai/Coromandel ranges before reaching the Golden Valley farmlands in the northeast and the Pacific Ocean at Whiritoa. The Hauraki District is a relatively small territorial area, although it is geographically very diverse. All up the District covers an area of 1,269 square kilometres.
