Growing up here

30 Stops

Explore Lyttelton through the eyes of a child.

Wander the town and find hidden spots rich with stories.

Since 2016, Lyttelton Primary School Students have been interviewing people who grew up here. These stories have been collected, curated, edited and matched to places.

Made with support from Lottery Grants Board and Lyttelton Port of Christchurch.
