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.

Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.
