Manakau is a small town 15 kmís south of Levin. This is a typical by-pass town because all of Manakau proper is over the single entry rail line to the east of the highway. Manakau is a township that has been around for a long time and features in heritage data.

The streets of Manakau are of an earlier era and remain narrow and tree-lined. Manakau is a quite pretty place and if the timing is right a beverage at the Manakau Hotel may be a consideration.

The Manakau Church is also a heritage building.

Manakau has a War Memorial. To imagine that nearly one hundred years ago this so very small community contributed to the Great War. But importantly to this day the War Memorial just over from the Hotel remains a reminder even for this community the sacrifices that were made.
