Manurewa Marae

Manurewa Marae is a beautiful marae sitting the shores of Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa (Manukau Harbour).

The Manurewa marae was originally initiated by the vision and passion of a handful of whanau living in Manurewa, who wanted a marae to support Tangihana and ensure that Maori Tikanga, Kawa and heritage were maintained. The marae has now grown with the community into a beautiful safe haven, where whanau, organisations and people of all cultures can come and learn in a vibrant and sacred setting.
