The Story of Surfdale

The Team from Auckland Museum

Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...

Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...

At 8 pence a day on top of a small deposit, a Surfdale section was also promoted as a sound investment – so close to downtown Auckland that “values must go up and up and up”.

Well, they weren't wrong there.

Today, Waiheke Island brings to mind sunny vineyards and beachy weekend getaways. The image of Waiheke as an “island paradise” has its origins in 1920s marketing, but the island has long been desirable even as its character has changed over the past centuries.

As we go into the long weekend and begin to venture further afield again, why not have a read of how Waiheke came to be the place it is today, in this blog about its recent history by our Project Curator, Jane Groufsky.

A coat of paint would clean it up nicely if it bothered you. This is made of wood not mdf and is relatively easy to move as the drawers come out easily making it light enough for 2 people to pick up no worries. All drawers open and shut easily, one of the smaller drawers faces could do with some wood glue but is functioning fine. It is 420mm deep, 940mm wide and 1300mm high. Pickup only from Blockhouse Bay. Bank deposit preferred

Price: $50
