Mangawhai Domain Home

Mangawhai Domain is a “Community Domain” where the “Community” is:
  • Elderly people who like a nice flat place to have a walk and a picnic.
  • Young families looking for a place with a park to that is a change from the beach.
  • Kids who want to head down and just play on the grass.
  • People who are grateful to have a place to run their dogs off the lead while they have a walk.
  • Sports groups who enjoy having a local facility able to be shared by all.
  • Parents who decide to have their kiddies birthday parties there because of the grounds and the park.
  • Couples who want to get married in a beautiful spot, and enjoy the use of the facilities and the grounds while celebrating.
  • All the people who have come to love the Annual Gala during their Summer visits and the stall holders who love it so much they book a year ahead.

Our Vision

To develop, improve and encourage the use of the Mangawhai Domain for as many activities as possible for the benefit of Mangawhai and the wider Community

The Mangawhai Domain is a community owned facility, managed by an elected Committee.

All funding for maintenance and upkeep is raised by the Committee and volunteers, mostly through our Annual Gala Day held on 02 January every year which raises about 70% of annual maintenance and minor capital improvements.

We also get grant funding on an ad hoc basis for major capital works and a grant from Kaipara District Council to assist in the maintenance we undertake on the adjoining Council-owned Rose Madsen Cottage.

Upcoming events

 Some groups who currently use the facility and have activities based there include:

Entertainment, Music, Rides and about 200 market stalls, food, dog shows and more.  Great involvement of local and visitor community.  Caters for all age groups, families, singles.

Opportunities for the community to use for even more activities
