For ninety years, five generations of the Jonkers family have farmed the land at Puketotara (the original Maori name for the land on which Jonkers Farm now stands) and run it as a working farm. This spectacular 540 acre property is also a global destination for film and special events. Just thirty minutes from downtown Auckland, situated near the wild west coast of Bethells Beach (Te Henga) Jonkers Farm boasts views of both the west and east coast, including Muriwai, Bethells Beach, Kaipara Harbour, Auckland City and the Sky Tower.
Jonkers Farm is home to the iconic Puketotara Pa site, a fully operational airstrip and the much loved 1940's woolshed. Diverse scenery of rolling hills, natural water ways, native bush, many vistas, flat land and vintage farm buildings have made Jonkers Farm an ideal background for many film, TV shows and commercials including Power Rangers, Black Beauty, Legend of the Seeker, America's Next Top Model, Shortland Street and many other productions.
