Event details

Today Sandringham is home to New Zealand's finest collection of restaurants and food markets selling the cuisine and ingredients of South Asia. But by delving into the past, you can learn more about the social history that brought immigrant communities to Sandringham.

SPiCE (the Sandringham Project in Community Empowerment) and historian André Taber present a walking tour for you to learn what the residents of Sandringham used to eat. Discover how Sandringham started as a farming district that lasted into the 1920s. The area changed dramatically when the trams arrived, and it gradually became more multicultural. Reminisce about the butchers, bakers, grocers, fishmongers, cafés, and restaurants long gone.

Walking shoes and a moderate degree of fitness are recommended for this walking tour.

Presented by: SPiCE
