The suburb is located on the Mahia Park peninsula on the Manukau Harbour. It includes the area of Wattle Cove.
Originally the Mahia Park peninsula was farmland (belonging to Ian Ross) but has been developed in a number of phases. The area is almost exclusively residential, with only a few shops and schools.
There are two schools and one daycare in the area:
Wattle Downs Early Learning Centre is a day care centre for the under fives.
Wattle Downs Golf Course, a 9-hole golf course, is nestled between areas of housing and includes views over the harbour.
There are several reserves, including Kauri Point Reserve down Moor Park, Wattle Farm Reserve on Wattle Farm Road and Wattle Farm Wetlands Reserve also on Wattle Farm Road.
