Auckland Heritage Festival in 2020 has events to suit all tastes and ages. Explore the sacred spaces of The Holy Trinity Cathedral, or the notable and notorious persons of John Kinder House, there are even two guided walks around Dove-Myer Robinson Park (one by historian John Adam , and the other by Auckland Council Parks). For our younger historians, Auckland Museum has the Tāmaki truth trail, where they will need to follow clues to discover which stories are facts and which are fake. If you would rather do your heritage learning from home this year, Auckland Libraries has a number of online videos available for viewing free of charge.
