South Auckland compromises much of the southern regions and suburbs of Auckland with Manukau forming its heart, but also including other suburbs such as Papakura, Manurewa, Pukekohe and Waiuku. South Auckland is known for its rich multi-cultural make up with its large Maori and Pacific Island populations. South Auckland is not an official region but rather a name used by New Zealanders and New Zealand businesses to refer to this general region of Auckland. more
