  • Fascinating insight into NZ colonial history. Not suitable for mobility impaired.
  • An important place to visit as a new Zealander

  • Get rid of the nasty man Peeni Henare from the trust! Perhaps if he or his children or someone close to him gets cancer or some other serious illness or disability he might learn some compassion for other people. His great grandfather, Taurekareka Henare, would be ashamed of him. Medical help shouldn't only be available to people with less than 12 months to live.
  • Humbling experience. Excellently maintained site of immense importance.
