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.

Papakura District Council's physical address is:
35 Coles Crescent, Papakura
