Event details

Birkenhead was coined "Auckland's most healthful marine suburb" by our forefathers in promotions.

By 1913 it was home to some of Auckland's most eclectic and colourful characters. Their mysterious stories to be revealed during this tour.

In 1921, Clement Wragge wrote to Henry Hawkins: "I who have travelled in all the six divisions of the world, chose to settle in 'God's own Country' and picked the shores of Little Shoal Bay - the sweetest nook in all Māoriland - for my home. I am grateful to those who attend my lectures. Some people think I am crazy, but I am as stable as Jupiter."

Presented by: Birkenhead Town Centre Association and The Birkenhead Heritage Society
