Captain Cook Thinks Again

Captain Cooks asks the big "what ifs."

Sometimes you need to walk around and have a rethink. 13 Feb – 24 Feb

Barbarian Productions re-investigates the history of Wellington’s waterfront with a brand new walking experience for the 250th (Sestercentennial) anniversary of Captain Cook’s landings. Walk the streets of Wellington with Captain Cook and visit significant historical sites around Wellington’s Waterfront as he finds himself remembering and questioning his own contributions to New Zealand history. A fun and accessible opportunity for visitors, tourists, and locals to reflect on the effect of colonisation and its legacy.
