Mangawhai Daring Trust

Mangawhai Daring Trust

We aim to tell how New Zealand developed culturally, socially, and politically during the 1860's through the stories of the ship the Daring.

Northland

The 1863 schooner the Daring has some incredible stories to tell about the cultural, agricultural and political development of New Zealand in the mid 1860's. As custodian of the Daring and her stories the Mangawhai Daring Trust is working with conservators to preserve the metals and timbers of the vessel to ultimately display her in a purpose built museum, the Daring Discovery Centre. Curation of the museum will include the display of the ship and the treasures found within her hull. Interactive and educational resources are being developed to support the 2022 education curriculum focus for school groups visiting from the Auckland and Northland regions.

More about us

The trust is custodian for the 53ft 1863 schooner the Daring which was recovered from the intertidal zone of Muriwai Beach and is now being preserved at Mangawhai where a museum is being built to share the stories of New Zealand life in the mid 1860's

As fascinating as the Daring's story is so far, there's much more yet to uncover - so the research goes on ... expect surprises!
