Mangere Mountain, or Te Pane O Mataoho is a dormant volcano which is full of amazing history. Discover the life of our ancestors, the Maori tribe while hiking the path up to the summit of the mountain. I went there with my class as a school trip, and we all loved it. The mountain gives lots of easy walks with breathtaking views. When you reach the top you feel absolutely amazing! Mangere mountain is especially unique, because of its lava dome, the only one in the southern hemisphere.
I recommend it for ages 6+ although some 5-year-olds may also like it but be prepared for a bit of walking. Visit their website at www.mangeremountain.co.nz. So hop in the car and get driving to Te Pane O Mataoho!
