bezoek aan Waitangi grounds

vandaag doen we een bezoek aan de Waitangi grounds, een historisch belangrijke plek en daarnaast ook nog eens erg mooi. Ik citeer uit de folder:

Waitangi National Trust Treaty Grounds – The very heart of New Zealand history

Gifted to the Nation by Lord and Lady Bledisloe in 1932, The Waitangi National Trust Treaty Grounds is a unique and fascinating insight into New Zealand`s historic past. The Treaty of Waitangi, signed here in 1840 between the Maori Chiefs and British Crown, became the basis for life in New Zealand as we know it today. Visit the historic Treaty House, fully carved Maori Meeting House, Maori War Canoe and Exhibition. Experience the award winning Sound/Light display in the Meeting House, enjoy the magnificent park like grounds with their abundant native bird life, heritage trees and wonderful Bay views.
