Get Your Sea Legs On For a Harbour Cruise Into Yesteryear

Get Your Sea Legs On For a Short Harbour Cruise Into Yesteryear

Shed 10's doors will be flung open to the public next weekend (28-29 September), with two family fun days kick-starting the 2013 Auckland Heritage Festival.

Dating back to 1910, this historic structure was originally used to store goods for import and export and is the last remaining shed of its kind on Queens Wharf.

To celebrate its recent refurbishment a weekend of family fun is planned with an array of maritime heritage attractions and entertainment on offer, from sea shanty singing and swing dancing groups to kid’s workshops, vintage cars and classic boats.

To hear more we’d like to invite you for a cruise and refreshments aboard the deck of the 105-year-old Jane Gifford on Tuesday 24 September at 4:00pm. Click here to view your invite.

Kindly RSVP to Sam from the PR team by Friday 20 September via e-mail (waterfrontauckland@outlook.com) or phone (+64211452567).
We look forward to seeing you onboard next week.

Kind Regards,
Skye Pathare.
