Mt Victoria Heritage Walk

09 November 2008 - 10.30 am to 12 noon

On Sunday 9 November, there will be a free Heritage Walk of Mt Victoria Takarunga, in Devonport, Auckland. Starting on the summit of Mt Victoria at 10.30 am, the walk will cover points of historical and archaeological significance on the mountain and will include visits to Fort Victoria, the Bunker (home of the Devonport Folk Club), and the Signalmans House (now the home of the writers centre).

The walk is expected to last approximately 90 minutes. It will be followed by an open afternoon at the Michael King Writers Centre, where there will be a display about the history of the Signal Station, the signalmen and the house itself.

The walk has been organised by the Michael King Writers Centre as part of North Shore Heritage Week.
