Bay of Islands - Waitangi Treaty Grounds

The Waitangi Treaty Grounds, overlooking the Bay of Islands, is New Zealand's pre-eminent historic site.

It was here on February 6th, 1840, that the Treaty of Waitangi was first signed between Maori and the British Crown.

I didn't take too many shots of the Treaty House itself to bust=y looking at the history. It was the British representative James Busby's residence originally built in 1833
