Join the Auckland Council Heritage Unit for a walking tour of Cornwallis.

Prominently situated within the Manukau Harbour and with an expansive coastline, Cornwallis has long been a desirable place for settlement.

This walking tour will highlight the area's history through significant archaeological sites to Mana Whenua iwi - Te Kawerau ā Maki and Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, to the planned settlement of the peninsula and formation of the regional park as we enjoy it today.

Presented by: Auckland Council Heritage Unit.

This event is part of Auckland Council’s Auckland Heritage Festival, which is on from 26 September to 11 October.
