Activity 2: New Zealand is also known for many famous landmarks, including the SkyTower and the Harbour Bridge. In your blog list 3 famous landmarks in New Zealand. Along with the name of each landmark provide a brief description of it. Where is the landmark located? In your opinion, why is it famous?
The Sky Tower:
The Sky Tower is in Auckland, New Zealand. It is 1,076 tall. The tower was built in 1994 and was opened in 1997.
I think it is famous because it is the tallest building in New Zealand and because you can do bungee jumping at the tower.
One Tree Hill:
One Tree Hill is one of the tallest volcanic peaks in the city of Auckland. Known as the This Māungakiekie, it is also a sacred memorial ground for the Maori settlers.
I think that One Tree Hill is a Landmark because how nice it is walking up the hill and that it is sacred to Maori people,
This building is located in Wellington and New Zealand’s parliament building. It stands as the national symbol of the country.
I think it is famous because it is a ten story building and it is a great place to visit.
