Hauraki District is a territorial authority within the Waikato Region of New Zealand. The seat of the council is at Paeroa.

The area covered by the district extends from the southwest coast of the Firth of Thames southeast towards Te Aroha, although that town lies beyond its boundaries. It extends eastwards to the Bay of Plenty coast, taking in the southernmost part of the Coromandel Peninsula. The rest of the peninsula is part of Thames-Coromandel District.

Features of the district include the Karangahake Gorge, Whiritoa, the Hauraki Plains, Ngatea and the gold mining town of Waihi.


The district covers 1,144 km², and has a population of approximately 19,850 (June 2017)[1] residents, of whom 3,978 live in Paeroa[2] and 4,503 in Waihi.[3]

Local government

In 2010, the neighbouring Franklin District was abolished during the creation of the Auckland Council, and a stretch of the southwest coast of the Firth of Thames was added to the Hauraki District.

The current mayor is John Tregidga and deputy mayor is Toby Adams.[4]
