SETTLERS DAY OUT 22 NOVEMBER 2014
The Kauri Museum at Matakohe is promising something old and something new for its annual celebration of community history.
Fun and entertainment to be had by families of all ages.
Gum polishing, woodturning demonstrations and traditional skills and crafts will be on offer during the day, along with operational machinery such as the Cat 60 bulldozer, Wade Saw and the brickmaker. Outdoor activities include traditional children's gala events, a bouncy castle and equestrian demonstrations.
Settlers are encouraged to dress in period costume, and there will be a grand fashion parade at 1:15PM with prizes for best dressed.
The award winning Kauri Museum tells the story of our pioneering settlers though the lens of the Kauri Industry. The museum specializes in the legacy of our Kauri Forests; specifically the strong durable timber and the highly prized Kauri Gum.
Experience the adventures of our pioneering settlers and appreciate the legacy of our kauri forests.
