Heritage doesn’t just happen! Looking after the past and preserving it for future generations takes time and commitment.

The support provided by Friends helps to ensure ongoing work such as the:

  • Conservation of the Clarke Homestead.
  • Curation of Maori Taonga and other Collections.
  • Maintaining the beautiful Kiwi North grounds.
  • Caring for our living treasures.
  • and much, much more!
