Mangere Bridge is an Auckland suburb under the local governance of the Auckland Council, at the south end of Mangere's bridge over the Manukau Harbour.

It is home to Mangere Mountain and the Ambury Farm Park run by the Auckland Council, and backs onto rural land surrounding the Auckland Airport.[2]

It is a multicultural area, often with large families, with the suburb dominated by brick-and-tile homes built in the 1960s-1970s.[2]
