Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Manukau

Manukau /ˈmɑːnʉˌk/ is a metropolitan centre of Auckland, New Zealand. The suburb is located 23 kilometres south of Auckland CBD, and is in the Manukau ward, one of the thirteen electoral divisions of the Auckland Council.

The name Manukau, from the Manukau Harbour west of the city, is of Māori origin, and means 'wading birds', although it has been suggested that the name of the harbour was also sometimes rendered as Mānuka, meaning a marker post with which an early chief is said to have claimed the area.

Manukau was governed by the Manukau City Council until November 2010, when the entire Auckland region was amalgamated into a single Auckland council. The area still has a strong economic central business district, known as Manukau city centre, but is no longer an independent city. The area is now governed by the Auckland Council. The area immediately to the south of the Otahuhu isthmus, as far east as Maraetai and Kawakawa Bay including Howick and Clevedon, and as far south as Manurewa, was previously known as Manukau City, however it should not be confused with the suburb of Manukau. All former suburbs of Manukau City are now governed by the Auckland Council.
