Event details

Join us in Titirangi for the fourth edition of the West Auckland Heritage Conference!

Why did people venture 'Out West'? For the same reasons we still do today: recreation, jobs, inspiration and to ‘get away from it all’.

Hear about:

  • escaped prisoners hiding in the bush
  • boat loads of day trippers visiting Whatipu
  • going camping in Swanson
  • the story of the last journey of the famous Reverend Hamilton.

Four key note speakers will highlight the theme 'Destination West' in the morning at the Titirangi War Memorial Hall.

In the afternoon there will be presentations and workshops with smaller groups in Te Uru, Lopdell House and the Titirangi Library.

Doors open at 9.30am for a 10am start. Limited spaces available.
