featuring a panoramic view of Mangere Bridge township and the this video chronicles my walk up Mangere Mountain in Auckland New Zealand. Mangere Mountain (also Mangere Domain, for the park) is one of the largest volcanic cones in the Auckland Volcanic Field, with a peak 106 metres above sea level, and was the site of a major Maori pā. Many of the pā's earthworks are still very evident. It offers spectacular panoramic views.
The mountain features two large craters. The volcano has a wide crater with a lava dome near its centre, a feature shared by no other volcano in Auckland. The volcano last erupted approximately 18,000 years ago.
The mountain is one of the largest and best preserved of Auckland's
volcanic cones. Much of the archaeological environment on the mountain
remains, such as kumara pits, garden terraces, walled garden mounds and
stone boundary walls.
Near the mountain to the southwest is Mangere Lagoon.
