Residents of an Auckland suburb might have had a third maunga to love alongside Mt Victoria/Takarunga and North Head/Maungauika, Stuff reveals, had Mt Cambria/Takararo not been quarried away over the course of 100 years. Takararo was a 40-metre-high scoria cone volcano which was was slowly quarried away starting in the 1870s. It is believed pre-colonial Māori used the maunga for māra kai (food gardening). Photos of Takararo show terraces around the top, which suggested Māori were also living inside its crater.
