Sun 6 Oct 2019, 10:00am – 3:00pm
Tui Glen Reserve, Claude Brooks Drive, Henderson, Auckland
Celebrate 175 years of Henderson as a destination for journeys great and small – from kauri timber headed east to the harbour to Aucklanders headed west to buy fruit or wine, picnic, or have family days out.
Nestled on the side of Oratia stream, 'Tui Glen' - the first NZ AA registered Motor Camp - will be the stage for a '175 Henderson Heritage Picnic'. Join the West Auckland Historical Society and Club Moderne (formerly Art Deco Society) and admire stunning veteran, vintage and classic cars, bring your version of an old-fashioned picnic, join old time games, listen to gramophone music, savour goodies from the food stalls. Best costume, hat, picnic basket, Car of the Day, egg and spoon and sack races - all get a prize.
Discover where the 'Ocean Wave', the skating rink and the boats were and take in the heritage Tui Glen photo exhibition.
Parking at Tui Glen is very limited. Where possible please choose public transport, or park in one of the Henderson options, eg beside Falls Hotel, opposite Falls Hotel, at the West Wave carpark or at the two big car parks one in Great North Road beside the library and West City Mall.
