Auckland City invites the public to pack a picnic and attend an afternoon of entertainment, displays and tours at Hillsborough’s Monte Cecilia Park. Auckland City landscape architect, Helen Kerr, says “Monte Cecilia already has much on offer including one of Auckland’s grandest old homesteads, magnificent grounds, spectacular views and a rich cultural history. It’s also a great film location – Monte Cecilia House and grounds were used to film house scenes and the grounds of the country mansion in the recently released movie Narnia. The date for this event is Sunday the 26th of February. Time: 2pm – 6pm. Venue: Monte Cecilia Park (located between Mt Albert, Hillsborough, Korma and Herd Roads), Hillsborough, Auckland. Programme: 2pm – 4pm Children’s and family activities including a Narnia treasure hunt. Read more about it here.
