Event details

Hidden among the bustle of busy motorways and inner city streets is Auckland's oldest cemetery.

This setting of wild bush and streams is a significant heritage site and the final resting place of a who's who of Auckland's history - from famous early settlers and politicians to ordinary folks.

David Verran explores their stories and those of the many communities represented here, including Catholic, Anglican, Jewish, Presbyterian, Methodist, and Māori.

Presented by: Friends of Symonds Street Cemetery
