Event details

Visit the Ōtāhuhu Historical Society to view a display from the archives of local people who have contributed to Auckland's heritage.

The archives hold sketches, photographs, stories and ephemera telling the story of many inhabitants who have left their mark on Auckland.

Ōtāhuhu was prized by Māori for its portage and fertile land. The Fencibles created the township and built roads. Benefactors donated land for parks and memorials for remembrance. Politicians shaped Ōtāhuhu, Auckland and New Zealand.

The region grew into a commercial and industrial hub that served the surrounding suburbs.

Come along to celebrate the people who made this possible, and get details about a walk that visits key landmarks.
