Auckland Features Renamed

Date: 1/8/2011

New Zealand’s Little Barrier Island, Bream Tail, Goat Island and Mathesons Bay were renamed after the Crown reached a treaty settlement with Ngati Manuhiri. Although the English names can still be used, the features will be officially known as Te Hauturu-o-Toi (resting place of the wind) for Little Barrier, Paepae-o-Tu for Bream Tail, Te Hawere-a-Maki for Goat Island and Te Kohuroa (many mists) for Mathesons Bay. Renaming is part of the $2.5 million settlement.
