Event details

The Waihorotiu stream used to run down the Queen Street gully. Historian Lisa Truttman brings to life the stories of people who lived and worked beside the stream.

From the arrival of Lt Governor Hobson and his staff, the settlement of central Auckland was intimately connected with the flow of Te Wai horotiu and nearby watercourses. The aspirations of many early Aucklanders rose and fell along the course of what is now hidden.
