Sunny Summer Days on Salt River
The Family Picnic at the Beach-100 years apart.
The Kaipara Harbour, known locally as Salt River, has always been the perfect location for the family picnic. Our Textile Volunteers have developed an exhibition that shows a picnic scene in 1890 and contrasts it with a 1990 picnic scene.
Visit the exhibition in the Boarding House Gallery and see if you can spot the differences.
