Papakura District is a former local council territory in New Zealand's Auckland Region that was governed by the Papakura District Council from 1964 until 2000. The area makes up the southernmost part of the Auckland metropolitan area.

The area was originally a small independent city, until it became Papakura District in the 1989 reorganisation of New Zealand's local governments, and has now been overtaken by Auckland’s urban sprawl. The district is flanked by beaches on the Manukau Harbour to the west, Manukau City to the north and east, and the Franklin District to the south.
