The kauri tree, Agathis australis, is New Zealand’s largest and most famous native tree. Located midway between Auckland and the Bay of Islands in the warm north of the country, the Kauri Museum tells some of the stories of this amazing tree.
Far more than a museum of timber, the Museum has stories of the Māori of the north eastern Kaipara, of European pioneers, of foresters and sawmillers, gum diggers and farmers, and of business people, fishers and the families who have made this area their home.
Front of House heroes with masses of charm to share, are wanted for refreshed Kauri Museum.
Volunteer required to wash gum at the Kauri Museum at Matakohe. Up to 6-8 hours per week, anytime during working hours, Monday to Friday. Would suit a self-starter who does not require supervision. Not difficult work, but needs to be done thoroughly.
