Event details

Couldrey House, Wenderholm Regional Park and Waiwera have attracted visitors by sea and land for over 160 years.

Before roads, visitors to the house and holiday makers coming to the beaches came by water.

Our exhibition has something for everyone. You will see a special collection of maritime photographs, accounts of notable visitors from abroad. Enjoy a children’s area full of the beach side fun of yesteryear.

Orewa Library will hold a fun heritage inspired activity on Wednesday 9 October.

Orewa and Whangaparaoa libraries will host talks with Chris Hagon on Monday 14 October and Carolyn Reid on Monday 21 October.
