Description

Destination West – West Auckland Heritage Conferencel 2019

The story of 140 year old schooner "The Daring" recovered from the sands of Muriwai Beach and the Myth of Henry Swan are among the fascinating sessions at this year’s West Auckland Heritage Conference on 20 October.

Now in its fourth year, the theme of the 2019 festival is Destination West and will feature respected historians and archaeologists sharing the rich heritage of the area in the morning and a host of shorter workshops in the afternoon.

Waitākere Ranges Local Board member Sandra Coney says once again the conference will showcase some of the incredible stories from the area’s past.

“It just gets better every year and it seems that we will never be short of incredible stories to tell and a history worthy of discussing."

“What these stories also tell us is that what makes this area special and why people choose to come ‘out west’ hasn’t really changed from days gone by so whether your family has lived here for generations, you are new to the west or just fascinated by history, this conference has something for everyone.”

Throughout the day you will also hear about escaped prisoners hiding in the bush, boat loads of day trippers visiting Whatipu, going camping in Swanson and even the story of the last journey of the famous Reverend David Hamilton.

The West Auckland Heritage Conference is funded by the Waitākere Ranges Local Board with support from Whau Local Board.

To give everyone who wants to attend the chance to enjoy this event and decrease the number of people who did book but did not show on the day, the organisers have decided to sell tickets for this years' event. Your $20 ticket includes a catered lunch and afternoon tea.
