Just a short drive down State Highway 1 you’ll discover a landscape packed with possibilities. There’s the wild beauty of the west coast, the bush-covered Hunua Ranges, the heritage sites of Awhitu and Rangiriri, not to mention vineyards, golf courses, glow-worm caves and delicious fresh seafood.
There’s the opportunity to get into a kayak, hit the trails on a mountain bike, cast a fishing line and ride a vintage railway.
Whatever your idea of fun and relaxation, you’ll find it in beautiful Franklin.
