Cosa farete

We’ll meet outside the I site near the town clock. When we’ve introduced ourselves we’ll set off walking past Seddon House which was our first Government Building. I’ll tell you the story about English Pioneer Richard Seddon who came to the West Coast and ended up being Premier of New Zealand. He was quite a character. Afterwards we’ll continue our walk to the Heritage Area along the Hokitika River. Here you’ll see and hear the stories of the sailing ships that brought passengers and supplies to the West Coast. Then we’ll try and work out how they fitted 80 hotels into the main street in the 1860s. There’ll be plenty of time to take photos on our walk. We’ll stop outside the Carnegie Building and hear how Andrew Carnegie the Scottish American Industrialist donated money to the colonies to build libraries. If you are interested in this experience but can’t find a date or time to suit you please use the Ask Ann feature on the booking page to contact me to arrange a suitable time.

I’ve lived in Hokitika for many years and really enjoy the history of the area. I love telling visitors about our region. I’m currently an Airbnb host. I’ve worked in a Heritage Tourism business in outback Australia and I’ve been inspired by some of the tourist history walks I’ve done overseas. The Luminaries, the Man Booker prize winner by Eleanor Catton is set in Hokitika. As well as a general look around town I’ll tell you about life in the 1860’s. Exciting times!
