Events & Activities

The Treasury  is hosting a public lecture by Dave Wilton that will examine the travels and landmarks of James Cook's ship HMS Endeavour in the Firth of Thames - Waihou River area during November 1769. Lean more about the three main sites of interest related to Cook's visit to the Firth of Thames area: the Endeavour's anchorage in the Firth, the pa site visited when Cook and a small party voyaged by two ship's boats up the Waihou, and the place where they went ashore to measure a large kahikatea, which was probably also the limit of their journey up the river.
