Transports of Delight: A Victorian Packed Lunch

Coal range cooking at Highwic

As part of the Auckland Heritage Festival, visit Highwic and make your very own picnic box in our ballroom. Fill your box with some yummy lunch items in our 1863 kitchen and then head off into our award-winning gardens to enjoy your 'Victorian packed lunch'.

Afterwards, enjoy looking around the house, following one of our house hunts. Two sessions to choose from.
