Location Description

Blockhouse Bay takes its name from the fortifications built across the isthmus in the mid 19th century, when European settlers feared a Maori attack. However, the structures were never put to use and no remnants of them survive in the bay.

Blockhouse Bay is a residential suburb of Auckland City. It is sited on the northern coast of the Manukau Harbour. The suburb is located 11 kilometers to the southwest of the city centre, and is surrounded by the suburbs of Lynfield, New Windsor, Green Bay and New Lynn.
