  The Marae in the Waitangi National Reserve
by martin_nl

Waitangi is adjoined to Paihia and this is where the controversial treaty between the Maori people and the representatives of Queen Victoria's goverment was signed in 1840. There is quite a lot to see here, like the largest Maori war waka (canoe) in the world, a Marae, and the house where the treaty was signed.

From the Waitangi reserve you have a great view of both Russel and Paihia in the distance as well as from Kororareka Bay. It is also a great place to sunbath if you have the time and if the sun is shining of course!

Directions: From Paihia follow the Marsden Road in northern direction, and keep on following the shoreline. Cross the bridge and you're there.
