New focus on Northland historic sites
Nine significant places in Northland are brought together under the Landmarks Whenua Tohunga banner.
It’s an initiative of the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, the Department of Conservation, Heritage New Zealand and Northland iwi and hapu.
The sites are Cape Brett Rakaumangamanga, Clendon House, Kororipo Heritage Park, Mangungu Mission, Pompallier Mission, Rangihoua Heritage Park, Ruapekapeka Pa, Te Waimate Mission and the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.
The project is touted as promoting tourism as well as giving New Zealanders a greater sense of their heritage.
The project will be launched tomorrow morning at Kororipo Heritage Park beside Kerikeri Inlet with the unveiling of a marker post.
