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 Thames-Coromandel District.
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, around Kaiaua, was added to the Hauraki District.
The current mayor is John Tregidga and deputy mayor is Toby Adams.
