There was a huge crowd set up for a special event where the last remaing Maori Battalion member was being honoured on the Marae and was being presented with a medal by the Italians. A great occasion and there was a special Marque set up with chairs everywhere you looked.

We had a brief look around St Faiths Church on the lakefront and thought we’d make head into town but its a lovely tranquil spot and the steam and heat from the bores and water makes it a special place.
There is free parking for Motorhomes just along from there towards the city so its an easy walk and well worth doing.
For a look at our last trip here and some interiors of the church go here.
