Event details

This tour is based on the work 'Delusions of Canute' stitched by Margaret Lewis, one of Auckland's contemporary textile artists. It restores the original shoreline of Tāmaki Makaurau, as though Tangaroa/God of Water was reclaiming his domain.

We take a slice of the map and stop by Waitematā Local Board's heritage panels that highlight some of the history of the sites from our pre-colonial heritage to more recent times.

In this tour we'll be walking from Victoria Park to Britomart. We have pocket maps for walkers so that you can continue the walk yourself.

Presented by: Auckland Council
