Ballad of the Waitaki

Ballad of the Waitaki exhibition, Waitaki Museum,  2023

Sometimes roaring, sometimes wandering, the Waitaki is always present. It runs through our district as it runs through our past. Massive, beautiful, old, it forged the land that we call our home and, in doing so, forged us.

This exhibition charts the flow of Waitaki’s past over the last 120 years. Like any chart it is only a snapshot of our understanding, as time marches on, the course of our past changes just like that of the mighty Waitaki.
