Roadside Stories: Seacliff and Karitāne

The coastal Otago town of Seacliff was the site of a lunatic asylum for almost 100 years. In 1907 asylum superintendent Truby King, a resident of nearby Karitāne, set up what was to become the Plunket Society – an organisation to support and advise mothers on baby care. Highly successful, Plunket is still active today.
