Event details

Wenderholm Regional Park has a rich Māori heritage reaching back over many centuries. In 1857 the first Pākehā resident, Scot Robert Graham, built Couldrey house and developed a spa at nearby Waiwera.

Later owners included the retired English army Major John Whitney and his artist wife Harriet; and the philanthropic young widow Annabella Mary McKail Geddes, of English and Ngāpuhi descent.

The last owners were Tim Couldrey, a third-generation New Zealander born in Northcote, and his wife Brenda nee Edmonds. Her grandparents were English immigrants in Lyttelton, who developed the iconic Edmonds baking powder.

Now Couldrey House belongs to Auckland Council and welcomes Aucklanders and visitors, coming from every corner of the world.
