Matariki on Karangahape Road
Explore Karangahape Road through a series of exhibits and tours between 13-16 July, celebrating Matariki 2020. Until the middle of the 20th century Karangahape Road was the only street in central Auckland with a Māori name, because it predates European settlement. The Symonds Street and Karangahape Road ridges are part of the walking route used by Māori to reach the Manukau Harbour, which continues along Great North Road to Point Chevalier, Avondale and then on to Cornwallis at the Manukau Heads. This track was known as: Te Ara o Karangahape – The Path of Karangahape.
