WHO WE ARE
The ACDHT Trust has been granted a concession from DOC, Maunga Authority / Auckland Council to conduct guided tours at our three locations.
It is estimated that there are over 500,000 visitors per year to North Head alone. The Trust has designed tours with guides who will enhance the visitor experience, and any profits are used to restore the historic aspects of the sites and maintain them.
There are a number of underground installations not open to the public that can be brought to high standards and interest for the visitor. In addition most of the currently accessible areas can be greatly improved for visitors and tourists without degradation of the amenity values.
The Trust's concession gives the right to charge for guided tours and unique experiences that can be developed around the forts, and their history. Revenue earned is used to restore and improve the sites, preserving and enhancing the sites historical values.
Tours can be arranged for a variety of groups ranging from school educational visits through to organised tours for tour groups or from cruise ships. Times and content can be adapted to suit your purpose and schedule.
The Trust accepts any charitable donation to enable it to continue its work as described above. We also regularly seek volunteers to assist with tours, or with the administration of the Trust. If you wish to contribute, please contact us.
