Waitangi National Trust & Treaty House, North Island

Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
Discover the birthplace of modern New Zealand at Waitangi National Trust & Treaty House, site of the historic signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. Signed by representatives of the British Crown and Maori chiefs, the treaty established the office of a British Governor of New Zealand and codified the Maori peoples' right to ownership of their own land, as well as their rights as British subjects. The trust has kept this location looking as it did in the 19th century, and informative displays take you around the house and grounds. Look for the exquisite ceremonial war canoe displayed outside the ornate meeting house.
