Flat Bush is an incredibly popular, developing suburb of Manukau and is located near Manukau Heights. It is about eight kilometres from central Manukau and about 21 kilometres from central Auckland.
Until recently Flat Bush was uninhabited; in 1996 The Manukau City Council bought 290 hectares of land and created plans to develop Flat Bush into a new city, with residential population anticipated to reach 40,000 by 2020. The suburb will be community and environment oriented with plenty of open space and urban, lasting design. The town centre development is well underway and will contain shops, cafés, offices, community facilities, a public library and an aquatic centre in nearby Barry Curtis Park. The park, named after Manukau’s longest standing mayor, Barry Curtis, contains New Zealand’s first cable-stayed bridge. The park opened in 2008, and is a popular destination for walking, and other leisure activities.
There are a range of new developments offering excellent options for small to large families; young and old. The area has become a hotspot of real estate activity within the Eastern Beaches/Manukau area.
