Monthly Heritage Events
The Historical Society is planning regular events celebrating Waiheke’s and New Zealand’s heritage and crafts. These will normally occur on the first Sunday of every month starting at 12 noon. Here are the next few:
Ideas for future events are welcome. Got something you’d like to show off? Talk to us!
Republication of Waiheke Pioneers
Dixie Day’s book Waiheke Pioneers, the standard reference for early European settlement on Waiheke, had been out of print for five years, but we have published a second, revised edition. The book launch took place in conjunction with our AGM on 12 June 2022. You can purchase the book at the Museum or at retail stores around the island, or order it online.
Goodwin Cottage handrail
Thanks to island handyman Paul Wise, the steps up to Goodwin Cottage now have a handrail to help our disabled visitors enter the cottage. Paul is also responsible for the brick edging that now graces the pathways between cottages. Thank you Paul!
We’re featured on the Sealink Roadtrip
Our Museum is featured on Sealink’s Art & Culture Roadtrip. Have a look!
The History Quiz
That’s right — a trivia quiz with no science, no rugby, no Hollywood! We plan on making it a regular event for the Historical Society. Members and non-members welcome.
Wharf2Wharf Fun Run
Saturday, 14 March 2020
Once again, our Museum provided water to passing runners. Sadly, the races were cancelled in 2021, 2022, and 2023, but are on for 21 January 2024. Come join us next year!
Annual General Meeting
New members are always welcome!
