Lyttelton Redux Tour - Cya On The Road

In a series of 23 portraits current Lyttelton locals are recreated as notable historical and everyday figures from Lyttelton’s rich past. The portraits encompass a diverse cross-section of Lyttelton’s early communities, reflecting the town’s social history, its connection with the sea and the area’s development over time, including important Ngai Tahu representatives and early or notable sea captains, significant colonial settlers, Antarctic explorers who used Lyttelton as their main supply base and departure point, notable women and individuals representing various occupations of the ‘common man.'

 Explore Lyttelton and discover the works around the township and learn a little of Lyttelton's rich history along the way.
