Chinese footprints: A walking tour of Wellington’s history

Join Lynette Shum (Oral History Adviser) and historian Nigel Murphy for a walking tour that traces Chinese histories through central Wellington. The rich history of the Chinese in Wellington is largely invisible to the casual observer, yet if we look beyond the surface, the past begins to reveal itself. This 2-hour walking tour points out sites of significance for Wellington's Chinese community including businesses, eateries and Haining Street's 'Chinatown'. The tour concludes with a pot of Chinese tea at the Poon Fah Association clubrooms.
