Famous New Zealand Landmarks

Rio de Janeiro, the host of Olympic Games this year, is a huge, vibrant and dynamic city. Perhaps the most famous landmark in the city is a large statue of Jesus called ‘Christ the Redeemer’ that sits on top of a hill overlooking Rio.

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. 

My Opinion:

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.

My Opinion:

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,

The Beehive:
This building is located in Wellington and New Zealand’s parliament building. It stands as the national symbol of the country.

My Opinion:

I think it is famous because it is a ten story building and it is a great place to visit.
