Whangārei author Don Armitage will talk about the many shipwrecks on New Zealand's coasts from the Chatham Islands to Northland.

Don has worked as a diver, fisherman and fisheries officer and has salt water instead of blood in his veins. He has written, researched and produced many books, including six of the popular True Tales series. He has an avid interest in shipwrecks and is a well-known authority on the subject.

In this fascinating presentation Don will bring you up to date with exciting new developments in the story of the Daring - the two-masted schooner which was wrecked near South Head of Kaipara Harbour in February 1865. In 2017 the wreck emerged from the shifting sands where it has lain buried for over 150 years.

No prior booking required. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
