Event details

Have you ever wondered where many of our local roads, parks and beaches got their names from? Many roads and locations were named after landowners and other locals who, over time, helped shape and change the area.

But who were these people? Discover the history behind the use of different road and location names in the Whangaparāoa and Hibiscus Coast area.
