Where The Heck Is Grey Lynn ?

Grey Lynn Festival, an annual event in the suburb.
Different Auckland town centres have adopted Rugby teams from countries that qualified for the World Cup.
Room 19 found out information about :
The location in Auckland;
Something special about this place;
A 'potted' history of the place;
If it has it's own symbol of some sort.
(If we couldn't find a symbol we chose a picture that told more about the place).

Grey Lynn is the host suburb for the Samoan 2011 RWC team.

Grey Lynn is located three kilometers to the South West of Auckland City Centre.

Every year the Grey Lynn Festival is a well-known local celebration.

Grey Lynn was named after Sir George Grey, (14 April 1812 - 19 September 1889) the Governor of South Australia and twice governor of New Zealand.

  1. Hey Room 19,
    First off, I would like to thank you for putting this post up. Why? Well because I had no IDEA where Grey Lynn was, and thanks to your map I know now. A question I would like to ask is: Do you know how Grey lynn was named after Sir George Grey, Well I understand where the name Grey comes from, but how did they get the name Lynn?

    Keep up the great work Room 19.

  2. Hi Room 19,
    My name is Katie and I have been assigned to follow your blog posts for a class that I am currently in. I am from Alabama and I am a student at the University of South Alabama majoring in Elementary Education. Being from Alabama we don't have many or any rugby teams so this post definitely educated me. Thanks once again for the post and keep blogging so I can learn more! :)

  3. Hello Room 19,
    My name is Erwin Coleman, a student at the University of South Alabama located in Mobile, Alabama. I am majoring in Secondary Education with a Concentration in History and I have been assigned to follow your blog in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. Being from Alabama, we do not have many rugby teams but my school currently does have a rugby team. I know rugby is a popular sport in New Zealand and the 2011 World Cup is being held there. Are you a big fan of the New Zealand All Blacks team?

  5. Hi Room 19.

    I found myself a little confused. November the 17th doesn't call on a Saturday...

    Oh and :P You guys see me just about every day and a few people even ask where I live - I'm a short walk away from Grey Lynn.

  6. Hi Room 19,

    I did not know where Grey Lynn got its name from so thank you for giving that information. So Grey Lynn got Samoa, I think Glen Innes had Samoa too.

    Keep up the good work
