Postcard from Tuakau



Tuakau  is a small township south of Auckland (the late Sir Edmund Hillary was schooled here in this town when he was a boy). It used to be part of the Franklin District but for some reasons Franklin has been merged with greater Auckland at the end of 2010 while Tuakau has been included as part of Waikato.

Tuakau Bridge was built in 1933 over Waikato River linking River Road with Port Waikato and Highway 22. It is a reinforced concrete Arch bridge only 210 metres long. The bridge has become one of the landmarks for this area.
