Waitangi Day: The New Zealand Story

$27.99 inc GST

Waitangi Day is New Zealand’s national day, celebrated around the country. It marks the first signing of the Treaty of Waitangi or Te Tiriti o Waitangi on 6 February 1840 at Waitangi in the Bay of Islands.


This story goes back to the earliest visitors to Aotearoa. How Waitangi Day came to be such a significant date on the New Zealand calendar is equally interesting and full of little-known details.

Between 1840 and today, February the 6th has been a day that was sometimes overlooked and ignored, and sometimes a focus for stormy protest, debate and discussion. In Waitangi Day: The New Zealand Story, you will discover:

  • What has happened since 1840
  • How Waitangi Day is celebrated today
  • Historic places to visit at Waitangi and around the Bay of Islands

Richly illustrated with illustrations and photographs from the past to the present, this is a fascinating account of an important place, and a very special day.
