Conferences and Announcements
Unfortunately, the committee has decided to cancel the planned November mini-conference (which was to be held in conjunction with the NZHA conference in Dunedin).
The closing date for abstracts was last week, but we have not received sufficient offers of papers to run a day-long event.
As a result, the PHANZA committee has decided to cancel the conference, and we believe that doing this sooner rather than later gives people good notice if they need to change travel plans.

Auckland's Waterways - online exhibition
One of the themes for the Auckland Heritage Festival this year was Auckland’s waterways – land & sea. Auckland Council Archives created a digital exhibition for the festival that supported this theme and it is still available via our website. It is intended that this online exhibition will provide an understanding of how Auckland’s waterways have developed and have been used for recreation and transportation over time.
