Parakai is an historic township noted for its natural thermal
springs, located just five minutes from its larger cousin
New Zealand - and just 40 minutes' drive from Auckland City.
A small farming community for the past few decades,
Parakai is set to explode with a range of developments
aimed at turning the town into a 21st century spa.
Amenities in the Parakai area today include two public hot
water pool complexes, a supermarket, primary school and kindergarten.
With one large subdivision just completed and others on the
drawing board, the population of around 800 is set grow rapidly.
