About the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu area
The Manukau Harbour and the Tamaki Estuary surround three sides of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area. The area includes the coastal township of Māngere Bridge, the Māngere and Ōtāhuhu town centres, as well as the Favona and Māngere East town centre and suburbs.
Dominated by Māngere Mountain, the area is home to the Ambury Regional Park, significant archaeological sites including Otuataua Stonefields, the Robertson Hill-Sturges Park volcanic cones and the historic Portage route (Te Tō Waka), used by Maori to transfer waka between the Manukau Harbour and Hauraki Gulf.
Auckland Airport, New Zealand’s largest and busiest airport, is situated in the area and services over 13 million passengers a year. Passenger demand is expected to more than double by 2025.
