Following the subtle signs that locate us while noticing the seasonal markers, this walk moves through Glen Eden towards Waikumete Stream.

Wayfinding Waikumete investigates the lost name of Waikumete (waters of the kumete bowl) unveiling stories of the past, present and future. This walk is part of a series of walks that track the history of Waikumete.

The walk begins at the Glen Eden train station and moves through Glen Eden towards the Waikumete stream.

It will be offered as a group experience at Alert Level 1 and 2 and as a self guided walk at Alert Level 3 or 4. At level 2.5 the walk will be offered as a mixed live and pre-recorded experience in socially distanced groups of 10.

We will provide you with further details in the week before the walk. Updates will be announced at and on Te Uru’s Facebook.

Wayfinding Waikumete is presented in partnership with the Auckland Heritage Festival 2020.

West Auckland-based performing artist Christina Houghton takes audiences on sensory and exploratory walks. Her long running series Wild Walks have rambled through West Auckland using instructions and props to help people experience the wild wonder of their immediate environment. Her work reflects on the future impacts of climate change, emergency procedures and the idea of safety.
