The Hauraki District Council is a municipality in the Waikato Region of New Zealand. The seat of the council is at Paeroa.

The area covered by the district extends from the southwest coast of the Firth of Thames southeast towards Te Aroha, although that town lies beyond its boundaries. It extends eastwards to the Bay of Plenty coast, taking in the southernmost part of the Coromandel Peninsula. The rest of the peninsula is part of the Thames-Coromandel district.

Features of the district include the Whiritoa, the Hauraki Plains, and the gold mining town of Waihi. The town of Ngatea is also in the district.

The district covers 1144 km², and has a population of approximately 19,100 (June 2015 estimate)[1] residents, of whom 3978 live in Paeroa[2] and 4503 live in Waihi.[3] In 2010, the neighbouring Franklin District was abolished during the creation of the Auckland Council, and a stretch of the southwest coast of the Firth of Thames was added to the Hauraki District.

The current Mayor is John Tregidga and Deputy Mayor is Bruce Gordon.
