Things To Do: Manukau City

There are plenty of things to do at Manukau City. It is a multicultural eye-opener, and a fantastic place to meet people from across the Pacific and around the world. Manukau is a busy cosmopolitan centre that is home to the world’s biggest Polynesian community and a melting pot for other cultures.


If you’re after a taste of Polynesia, visit New Zealand’s largest street market - Otara Market. Each Saturday the marketplace bursts to life with colour and flavour. Pacific Island, Māori and Asian vendors sell everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to clothing and accessories. Pick up
unique jewellery or marvellous arts and crafts. For avid shopaholics who want a more refined shopping experience, there is also a Westfield shopping centre nearby.


For an enjoyable family day out, visit Rainbow’s End - New Zealand’s premier theme park. Experience the thrill of rollercoaster rides, bumper boats, family karts, 3D motion master and a family favourite - the dodgems. Or, if you’re seeking a more relaxing day, head to Auckland’s Botanic Gardens where you can picnic on the grass or enjoy a bite to eat in the café. With an impressive collection of plant species to admire, it’s a fantastic place to spend your time sitting
peacefully on a bench enjoying the sights and smells of nature in full bloom.


From markets, to stunning landscaped gardens and a theme park, you will never run out of
things to do at Manukau City.
