Annual Mystery Medical Tour Takes To the Streets to Raise Funds

The Otago Heritage Bus Society announces their second annual Medical Mystery Tour for 2013. This year the proceeds from the tour go to Otago @Heart.

About the tour
We can’t explain too much about the tour, because then it would not be a mystery, but we can say you will be enthralled with what we have lined up on our 3-hour tour.

The excursion departs Dunedin Railway Station on Sunday 4 August 2013 at 1:30pm. You will be hosted on board one of the Otago Heritage Bus Society’s heritage buses and taken around Dunedin and shown sites of historical note in the history of health care and health sciences in Dunedin. One thing we can tell you is we are making a visit to the University of Otago Dunedin School of Medicine Anatomy Museum, which is usually closed to general public. Please note that this tour may not be suitable for young children.

Tickets cost $25 per adult, $15 per child and $80 for a family (2 adults and 3 Children). Seats are limited and bookings are essential, like last year this mystery excursion fundraiser will sell out! You can book over the phone by calling (03) 4879585 or online at

About @Heart
Heart children make up the largest group of children born with congenital birth defects, with 12 children born affected every week. Yet the organisation @Heart receives NO Government funding.

About Otago Heritage Bus Society
Otago Heritage Bus Society was founded in 2010 "to preserve our history and serve our community." we restore historic vehicles and use them in ways that benefit local people. Provision of charitable excursions for local registered charities is an important objective of our society. Last year we raised funds for the Neurosurgery Campaign.

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
