Te Atatu South, West Auckland

About Te Atatu South:

Te Atatu South is a residential suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. Te Atatu in Maori means dawn. Located on the Te Atatū Peninsula, it has coastlines on its eastern and western sides, with walkways and bike paths on both sides. Its location makes the suburb convenient access to to the city and Henderson town centre, and its elevation gives beautiful views of the city and the Waitakere Ranges. 

In the 2018 New Zealand census, Te Atatu South had a population of 15,138 with 4,794 households.

History

The original Maori name for the Te Atatu area was Orukuwai. There is little evidence of early Maori settlement in the region, although the coastal fringes show evidence that the banks were used for fishing and bird hunting. Midden shells have been uncovered around the McLeod Reserve.

The European settlement started between 1853 and 1873 when Thomas Henderson bought land from Ngati Whatua and the Crown in 1855. The Henderson Timber Mill was built in what is now known as Henderson.

The area prior to the suburban development was primarily used for vineyards, poultry farms, fruit trees, apples, lemon orchards and flower farms.

Main Centres and Parks

Te Atatu South's main hub is the Te Atatū Town Centre, where Edmonton Road and Te Atatu Road converge. There is a small, light industrial area on McLeod Road.

Te Atatu South Park and McLeod Park are two major parks in the area.

Full moon rise behind A Pink Auckland Skytower. The tower was lit up pink tonight in support of breast cancer.
I wasn’t gonna do this shot again as it is becoming a cliché image, but a few friends really wanted to get a shot of their own, so I tagged along and brought them to the location where they can see it happen before their eyes.

Guy Fawkes Day
대포소리 같은게 들려 밖을 내다보니 바다건너 TeAtatu에서 불꽃놀이가 시작됐다. Guy Fawkes Day인 것을 깜빡 잊었다. 불야불야 삼각대 설치하고...
썰물이라 물이 빠져 반영이 아쉽다.
