Event details

Author Mike Lee describes an important chapter of our past - the French history of New Zealand.

Hear about:

  • what the French saw when they travelled around NZ's coast
  • some of the key characters - de Surville, Dufresne, La Pérouse, D'Entrecasteaux, Duperrey, Freycinet, D'Urville and Lesson
  • their relationships with Māori and desire of the French to compete with the British.
