Panmure is a suburb of Auckland in New Zealand’s North Island. It is situated 11 kilometres south-east of the Auckland CBD, along the western banks of the Tamaki River and the northern shore of the Panmure Basin.
Panmure, Auckland’s smallest borough, remained a thriving but largely rural setting until the mid-twentieth century. Only after World War II, with the explosive growth of suburbia around it and better bridges to Pakuranga, did Panmure begin to develop dramatically and become a commercial centre.
According to the 2018 New Zealand census, Panmure had a population of 3,651 people and 1,257 households.
The Panmure Basin, also known as the Panmure Lagoon, is a tidal estuary within a volcanic crater or maar in the Auckland volcanic region of New Zealand. It is located south of Panmure’s town centre.
Panmure Bridge School and Panmure District School are full primary schools, while St Patrick’s School is a state-integrated Catholic primary school.
