Saturday mornings (7am until 2pm at the Mangere Town Centre) are market days which bring in extra visitors. On a fine day, the view of the Manukau Harbour is brilliant, and if you are lucky there is interesting bird life to watch.
During the summer months, we like to stop and get fresh veggies (and strawberries) from the market gardens in Kirkbride Road.

The Hobbiton Movie Set Day Tour - From Auckland
Today we embarked on the buggy friendly loop walk that we had overlooked on previous visits. This one starts (and ends, of course) at Mangere Bridge Village, and heads around the harbour edge, under the motorway bridge, partly through the industrial area, along the base of Mangere Mountain and returns along the Kiwi Esplanade.
