On display in the historic Kaukapakapa Library next to the hall - "A Kauri Story” – a display of photos, logging memorabilia and all things Kauri including photos from the Jordan Collection and Tudor Collins.

Tools and items on display from the private collection of Ken Inger and Athol McLachlan will include - log rollers, Kauri Gum, gum scales, gum spear, timber jack, cross cut saw and pit saw. Also a selection of Kauri gum jewellery by Joy Hargreaves.

Ken Inger is related to descendants of Port Albert – the Albertlanders - and with his Grandfather working in a Kauri timber mill on the Kaipara until it closed, Ken has always had an interest in the Kauri industry and has built up his collection as he traveled around New Zealand. He is keen to share his collection & knowledge with others.

Athol McLachlan is one of three generations of McLachlan’s living on the road that takes their family name. In the '20s when Athol McLachlan’s grandfather purchased 500 acres, it was a horse-track that connected the family with Kaukapakapa, used especially for taking their cream to Mount Rex. Over the years gum-diggers developed the horse-track now known as McLachlan Road so that they could deliver gum to Dye’s Store in Kaukapakapa.
