Papatoetoe is a suburb in the New Zealand city of Auckland. Located between the area’s two largest harbours, Waitemata and Manukau, Papatoetoe has likely been inhabited for as long as anywhere in New Zealand. The name translated from Maori means “undulating area where the toetoe (which is a plant that grows in the swampy areas) is the predominate feature”. Its location, near the narrowest point between the two harbours, made it a thruway for merchants and shippers. Today Papatoetoe is a modest suburb where tourists can visit lovely gardens and take in a sporting game. Also located here are two huge parks, Kohoura and Omana.

  • The Auckland Botanic Gardens, located in Papatoetoe, boasts over 10,000 plants from all over the world—the garden’s collections include New Zealand native plants, a rock garden, and many African plants.
  • The Papatoetoe Historical Society’s museum offers exhibits showing how early local people lived with interesting information about the meaning and origin of street names.
  • Take in a game of cricket at the Papatoetoe Cricket Club; Papatoetoe’s teams who play in the Auckland Cricket Championship often have games open to the public at their facility.

The Auckland International Airport welcomes flights from around the world. Getting from the airport to Papatoetoe is possible via the Airbus Express, which is a direct service that run 24-hours a day, or with taxicabs. Getting around within Papatoetoe is often possible with Auckland’s bus systems. Detailed bus information can be found on their website, or at tourist information stations called i-SITE. If public transportation doesn’t take you where you need to go (or you don’t fancy it), taxicabs are available throughout the city. Walking between Papatoetoe’s attractions is a less attractive option than utilizing some type of road transport.
