Two days in New Zealands capital. Te Papa, the national museum, with NZs history, Maori artifacts, natural history, galleries etc. An exhibition is about the battle of Gallipoli, WWI, Turkey, at the moment. A bit to much Hollywood for my taste, but the stories are well told.
Zealandia is an ecosanctuary only 2km away from the city center and a predator free fenced valley with more than 30km of tracks. Among the birds and other native species are takahe, hihi, kaka and tuatara.
Cable Car, Botanic Gardens and Carter Observatory as well as HofbrÀuhaus were other attractions.
