The photographs, which have appeared in the issues of Canadian Geographic, have been carefully assembled and curated by the Canadian Museum of Nature and represent 80 years of outstanding nature photography. The exhibition has been touring New Zealand, courtesy of the High Commission of Canada.

Takapuna Beach Reserve
A scene from Bruce Mason's play The End of the Golden Weather will be performed (for the seventh year in a row) by actor Stephen Lovatt. The scene is a child's point of view of Christmas Day on Takapuna Beach in the 1930s.

The performance lasts about 30 minutes. Come along and sit on the grass or bring a chair.
