Nestled between Mangere and Otahuhu, Favona is a somewhat industry-dominated area with a strong sense of community. It is significantly convenient to both Middlemore Hospital and Auckland Airport and has easy access to public transport – including the Otahuhu train station, and the southwestern motorway.
A quick trip to the neighbouring suburb of Mangere will leave you with plentiful options for both cultural and recreational activities. Consider a visit to the Mangere Arts Centre – Ngā Tohu o Uenukuv, Metro Theatre and Massey Homestead. To get active visit the Moana-Nui-a-Kiwa Pool and Leisure Centre which offers a place for family and fitness enthusiasts alike.
Staying local, the Norana Esplanade Walkway links Favona to Mangere Bridge with the 3.9km long pathway. You can follow this walkway along the Kiwi Esplanade all the way to Ambury Regional Park.
A wide range of housing is available in this growing area.
