Treasure Island on Howe Street

This 5 man flat was named after the novel of the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson. The flatties, all from Auckland, listened to the audio book of Treasure Island on their summer road trip back to Dunedin.

The name of the flat is also influenced by its golden colour (think gold, m’ hearties) and the residents further embraced the name of their flat by dressing as pirates for the Hyde Street party this year (see below).

The flatties were interviewed in 2016 and featured on NewsHub.
