    ... 2 km away. It was a gorgeous walk by the beach, and we both marveled at the Bay of Islands. The Waitangi Treaty grounds is where the the Waitangi treaty was signed on February 6th, 1840. This was an agreement between the British and Maori tribes that they would both cohabit New Zealand peacefully.
