Mangere Mountain has stood tall for over 18,000 years. This unique Geopark close to the city takes you a world away. The site of an historic Maori settlement, it offers panoramic views over the city. It also gives an intriguing glimpse into the past. Join a guided walk. Encounter a unique volcanic lava dome, see traditional Maori gardens, learn about medicinal plants, try your hand at crafts.
