Live the Rural Kiwi Dream in Pokeno

Have you been wanting to live the rural Kiwi dream, without the fuss of living miles away from the city? Pokeno might just be the place for you!

It's now known for much more than its famous bacon and monster ice creams.
With affordable housing, stunning countryside, and just under an hour's drive to Auckland - Pokeno is the best of both worlds. The township is located in the Waikato region, 53 kilometres south of Auckland - ideal for commuters working in Auckland.

This gem of a town has been growing drastically over the past couple of years. There's been an influx of Aucklanders leaving the city due to unaffordable housing. They've been finding what they've been missing in little ol' Pokeno. The current population is just under 1800 residents, but is expected to increase to a population between 5000 and 6000 by 2046. The town's growth is undeniable.

Pokeno residents have credited its growth to its close proximity to the city, beaches, countryside, and the chance to live a peaceful lifestyle. Another big attraction to the town is its close knit community.
There's a real sense of community that comes from the people of Pokeno showing off their Kiwi kindness, and being so welcoming to the new residents.

Simon Davey, who decided to move to Pokeno back in 2013, hasn't looked back since.

"I love Pokeno, it's fantastic. 12 minutes up the road and if I want to go to Farmers I can literally park right outside."

"You have everything you need there - supermarkets, drycleaners, hairdressers, its brilliant. And as I say, no hassle with parking so I kind of have everything on my doorstep, I don't need to go into the city."

With everything you need just around the corner, the Pokeno lifestyle is ideal for people wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, without being too far from it at the same time.

You could say it's the perfect balance between city and rural life. And with reasonable house prices, locals can still commute to the city while still living their rural Kiwi dream!
