Journey to New Edinburgh Documentary Screening
By Toitu Otago Settlers Museum

175 years ago, on March 23 1848, the immigrant ship John Wickliffe arrived at Koputai Port Chalmers carrying 97 settlers from England, Scotland and Ireland looking to make a new life in what we now know as Ōtepoti Dunedin.   

 Developed by Toitū Otago Settlers Museum with support from the Otago Settlers Association, this documentary series traces the footsteps of Otago’s early European pioneers from its genesis in Scotland through to the challenging realities the settlers faced when they arrived.  The preview presents just the first chapter of this extraordinary story, with more to follow.

10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm, Thursday 23 – Sunday 26 March
