Come along and help us celebrate Highwic’s 40th Anniversary!
This event is to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Highwic being open to the public. While there was a Civic Reception attended by the Duke and Duchess of Kent on 31st October 1980, and the doors were opened to the public on the 1st January 1981, the official opening, by Colin Kay, Mayor of Auckland took place on 27th February 1981. This is why the event will take place on this day in the beautiful gardens at Highwic.

We invite you to bring along a vintage style picnic to enjoy on the tennis lawn. We will be publishing suggested menus for picnics throughout the decades from the 1860s when Highwic was built to the 1980s when Highwic opened on our website. There will be musical entertainment by the well-known local gypsy Jazz band VozNueva and there will be a bar selling a range of craft beers, a bespoke cocktail, in addition to non-alcoholic drinks.

Do feel free to dress according to your favourite historic decade!

The event will take place on Saturday 27th February from 1.00pm-4.30pm. The house will be open for its normal opening hours of 10.30-4.30 pm, and normal entry charges and conditions.

This is not a ticketed event but we will be gratefully welcoming gold coin donations!

Please note that only alcohol purchased on site may be consumed on the premises, no BYO.

A massive mural stretching 150 metres long and eight metres high is spanning the whole western wall of the New Zealand Maritime Museum in Auckland.

Napier artist Cinzah Merkens has created the artwork decking the museum on Hobson Wharf in the Viaduct.

The renowned contemporary artist said that while all his murals are personally significant, some, like this one, take on a special quality.

"It was a pleasure to be able to exemplify the Maritime Museum’s increasing focus on ocean health and sustainability by making the predominant design element of the mural the natural environment of the Hauraki Gulf and the Waitematā.”

A life-sized humpback whale and giant octopus, hammerhead and mako sharks, kahawai, and snapper swim amongst sea grasses and other ocean habitats.

Matariki and other celestial navigation markers fill the night sky, with Auckland’s iconic Rangitoto presiding in the background.

The flowing waves representing ancestors' journeys to Aotearoa are enhanced by depictions of the waka hourua Haunui and the brigantine Breeze, vessels berthed in the Maritime Museum marina.
