Auckland is celebrating its Heritage Festival (27 Sep to 12 Oct), and the Karangahape Road Business Association contributes free guided tours with K Road historian Edward Bennett. Rich in information, with wry humour and even dressed for the part. Highly recommended, and much more than history.

I took last Tuesday’s tour under the title “Opium and Optimism” – a tour of Myers Park, starting and ending at St Kevins Arcade.

    Fun pictures of the guide AND the group. These free Heritage Festivals/Doors Open/House Houses/Houses from Within are wonderful things for cities to have.

    He certainly looks quite distinctive. I’m sure I’d enjoy taking part.
