Event details

Listen in to Auckland Council Heritage Unit experts discussing some of Auckland's secret heritage stories. This series will encourage you to really look around your city - there are heaps of hidden heritage stories around us.

Have you ever heard about Tom the elephant, who arrived in Auckland in 1870 with the Prince of Wales? He was the talk of the town and lived at the old Albert Barracks for a while. And what about Queen Street? It has been the site of scandals, celebrations and protests over the centuries. We will also profile some fascinating Auckland women and the places associated with them.

Join us for this podcast series available online on Soundcloud.

Presented by: Auckland Council Heritage
