Event details

In 1842 the ship, the Jane Gifford arrived in Auckland full to the gunnels with settlers from Scotland.

In this semi-dramatised walk, Alex Bonham takes the role of Eliza Post, the wife of a naval officer.

Put yourself in the shoes of the settlers as Eliza takes you around the settlement as it was then.

She will give advice on managing day to day and reveals what was going on in Auckland at that time.
