Ramarama, previously known as Sheppards Bush, is a small community at the far south of the Auckland Region in New Zealand's North Island, located just to the north of the Bombay Hills (a point commonly regarded as the most southern part of the Auckland region).
The settlement contains a few small shops/businesses and farms/lifestyle blocks as would be expected from the entirely rural region in which it is located.
Ramarama Primary School is located in Ramarama. It was formally known as Maketu School but changed its name to what it is now. In the 1950s the school was almost closed down because it had only 12 students but current school population has risen to 215 in 2010.
