‘Broom to Boom – 20 Lives 20 Years’ is a compilation of personal reminiscences featuring twenty individuals who lived in and contributed to Taupō in the 1960’s and ‘70’s.

In the early 1960’s Taupō township consisted of a population of 2000 and was renowned for its pumice roads and surrounding broom. In the following 20 years with the establishment of forestry, farming, hydro and geothermal power schemes, the town experienced a marked increase in growth and development.

A team of oral historians have captured this fascinating and valuable record through the narratives of some of the residents who helped shape this town’s growth. Those interviewed in the book speak of their love of Taupō and their excitement with being part of a developing town.

The book is currently being printed and we are taking prepaid orders from today until the book launch at the Taupō Museum on 8 September. Copies WILL be limited therefore you need to be prompt to avoid disappointment.

The cost is $39 per book + $10 postage and packaging for those who require postage.

Please contact tracey.lidington@gmail.com or phone Tracey on 027 2409228 for details on how to pre-order and pay. Thank you.
