(also Te Manurewa o Tamapahore
or Wiri Mountain
) is a volcano in Wiri
, in the Auckland volcanic field
. It had a scoria cone reaching 80 metres above sea level (around 50 m higher than the surrounding land), which was quarried away. The lava flows created 290m long Wiri Lava Cave
. The hill was the site of a pā
. In late 2011 the quarry lake was drained and fill-dumping began on the site.
Matukutūruru and nearby Matukutūreia are collectively known as Matukurua (also ngā Matukurua).
