Event details

The Whau Stream is one of the two watersheds feeding the Whau River from beside Olympic Park. Much has been written about the river – but what about the stream from the east that gives rise to it?

Local historian Lisa Truttman explores the stream's origins and discusses the people who thrived alongside this once-vital fresh water source.
