By area, Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa (Manukau Harbour) is the second largest harbour in Aotearoa.

Loved and enjoyed by many, the harbour has always been a source for food gathering and has long provided the means for navigating the expansive coastline.

Goal #14 Sustainable Development Goals. UN Development Programme: Life below Water - To conserve and sustainably use the world’s oceans, seas and marine resources underpins the kaupapa of this exhibition. It directs our focus to the remediation and restoration of all aspects of the Manukau Harbour.

Auckland Libraries heritage collections form the basis of the exhibition. They serve to illustrate the rich bounty of the harbour in former times and present recorded journeys made across the breadth and length of this waterway.

On Saturday 10 March we invite you to bring in your photographs, letters, posters, newspaper clippings, objects, etc. to the library to show us.

If you would like, we could scan or photograph them and add them to the photograph album, or the scrapbook, as part of the ‘Gatherings on the Manukau’ exhibition as it travels around the harbour.
