About Manurewa



Manurewa is a major suburb in South Auckland, New Zealand. It was part of Manukau City before the creation of the Auckland super city in 2010. It is located 6 km (3.7 mi) south of the Manukau City Centre, and 26 km (16 mi) southeast of the Auckland central business district.

Manurewa is Māori for "drifting kite". The name refers to a kite flying competition where a kite line was severed and drifted away. The kite's owner was the chief Tamapahore who had a pā (fortified village) on Matuku-tururu (Wiri Mountain). The name Manurewa commemorates the incident by the name Te manu rewa o Tamapahore – The drifting kite of Tamapahore.

Manurewa has a high proportion of non-European ethnicities, making it one of the most multi-cultural suburbs in New Zealand. Employment for many is at the many companies of nearby Wiri, Papakura, and at the steel mill at Glenbrook.

Manurewa's main shopping centre, Southmall, is located on the Great South Road. The suburb is bisected by the Auckland Southern Motorway. Real estate values in Manurewa vary greatly..Manurewa is the home of Auckland Botanic Gardens which receives over a million visitors a year.
