Mangere Mountain

Mangere mountain is well worth visiting.

Mangere Mountain or ‘Te Pane o Mataoho’ to use its Maori name, is an important geological site and visually dominates the local landscape. Original occupants were a hapu or sub-tribe of Wai o Hua, the tribe claiming ownership of the area. The surrounding fertile volcanic soils were perfect for extensive gardening and the adjacent Manukau Harbour a prolific source of seafood and fish. Streams and freshwater springs supplied ample water.

Such resources were jealously and vigorously defended and evidence of fortifications can clearly be seen today. A ‘pa’ (fortified village) was established taking full advantage of uninhibited views of the area in case of invasion from competing tribes.

Located only 10 minutes from your hotel, an education centre has been established by Te Wai o Hua, in association with the Manukau City Council and the Auckland Regional Council and is managed by the Mangere Monutain Education Trust.
