Mark your calendar, Heritage Day is Sunday 3 November, 2024!
Step back in time and immerse yourself in the rich history of Lawrence. Heritage Weekend offers a unique opportunity to experience the customs, traditions, and way of life from a bygone era. Whether you're a history buff or simply looking for a fun day out, there's something for everyone.
Get your hands dirty and try your luck at gold panning, just like the miners did during the Otago gold rush. Or, if you prefer something a little less strenuous, take a stroll through our charming town and admire the quaint buildings and historical landmarks that have been preserved for generations.
And don't miss our showcase of antique combustion engines, lovingly restored to their former glory by dedicated enthusiasts. The sights, sounds, and smells of these machines will transport you back to a time when life was simpler and technology was just beginning to revolutionise the world.
Join us for a weekend of celebrating our rich heritage. We can't wait to see you!
