    Spend time with mum or grandma exploring the historic homestead (built in 1863) and garden at Alberton.

    Soak up the ambiance of the majestic setting over a morning or afternoon tea of light English scones with cream & jam in the grand Victorian ballroom (or on the verandah overlooking the garden - weather permitting). Served from beautiful vintage fine china and antique silverware it is a special experience, unique in Auckland.

    Tin robot toy

    Currently filling the Collector’s Cabinet in the ballroom at  Alberton is a small display of vintage 20th-century toys belonging to Auckland enthusiast Paul Maringka.

    Collecting toys has been a life-long passion for Paul. With acquisitions from flea markets and antique shops around the world, as well as donations, his impressive hoard fills a shipping container! In pristine condition with original boxes, these are wind-up, battery-operated, 'rotate-o-matic', with 'magic' piston action, bright colours, lights, sounds, boggling eyes and authentic design details. All are geared to delight, entertain and inspire the imagination. Their main objective: fun!
