Warkworth is a town in the upper North Island of New Zealand. It is located in the Rodney District and lies at the far north of the Auckland Region, just south of the Northland Region. It is located on State Highway 1, 64 km north of Auckland and 98 km south of Whangarei, and lies at the head of Mahurangi Harbour.

The Warkworth district is known as the Kowhai Coast, named after the native kowhai tree. Warkworth is well known for its ducks, which live around the river running through the town.

The town's annual Kowhai Festival is one of the largest community festivals in the country, running for around a week in spring. The final day of the festival used to be a whole-day event of family fun, rides, street stalls, music, food and wine, with the main street closed to accommodate the tens of thousands of visitors who attended, and ending with a parade. The organisers now lack funding for this day to continue with its old flair.
