Tableland – the history behind Mount Arthur

Sunday 30th August 2020

Ray Salisbury will talk about his forthcoming book, drawing on his family’s long association with the area. The talk will be well illustrated – Ray is a photographer, author and keen tramper and the great-great-grandson of the first Motueka Valley pioneer, John Park Salisbury, whose brother Thomas discovered the Tableland in 1863. After the gold rush, John’s flock of sheep grazed the tussock tops of the Tableland and the river flats of the Cobb Valley from 1875 onward.
