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.

Had the most amazing time with the entire family. Staff are brilliant. Very knowledgeable with regards to both the volcanic history as well as with the Maori history of the Volcano. The hands-on workshops are unlike no other. Well worth visiting. Recommend to all.
