Season 2 Episode 23: Blockhouse Bay


This week on Neighbourhood, we explore the vibrant and diverse Auckland suburb of Blockhouse Bay with TV presenter, Dayna Vawdrey.

We taste traditional Nepalese dumplings and visit a hostel that provides refuge for asylum seekers living in legal limbo. We listen to a German woman as she shares stories of her childhood and meet an Indian woman on a mission to give New Zealand audiences a more multi-layered impression of her culture.


TV Presenter, Dayna Vawdrey, thinks her neighbourhood, Blockhouse Bay, is one of Auckland’s best-kept secrets. Dayna’s father is Samoan and her mother was born in England but raised in Canada so Dayna considers herself a kiwi with a variety of different feathers.
