Craigieburn – What’s In A Name?

What's in a name? For more than 50 years the name Craigieburn has been known only by a few people in Dunedin. Most people passing through the main forest track from Ross Creek to Tanner and Wakari Roads probably thought that this unique heritage area was part of Ross Creek and never gave the name a thought. Today though the name has been put back into Dunedin’s  heritage, environmental and recreational lexicon with the placement of few simple naming signs at key entrance points. The Society is nearing completion of its restoration efforts which has greatly enhanced the opportunities for people to visit and enjoy the area. Over the next three weeks interpretative signs will go into key areas of the site to give people information on the history of Craigieburn and its people.
