Event details

As residents and retailers fled to the suburbs from the 1960s onwards, Karangahape Road changed from a premier shopping precinct to a marginal zone with the reputation of a red- light district.

This tour visits sites along the road, delving into the stories of sex workers, retailers, and others linked to this part of K'Road's culture and history.
