Where' s Waitangi? The Waitangi is only 1.8 km northern of Paihia, where the Waitangi River joins the seas. Waitangi means "crying (or loud) water" on M?ori. New Zealand's most important landmark: the Waitangi Treaty was officially recognised in 1840 on this breathtaking park-like site with a view of the Bay of Islands.

James Busby was sent to Paihia in 1833 in reply to a query from M?ori to the King of England for shelter. He drew up New Zealand's Declaration of Independence, which he personally drew up with many chieftains from the north of M?ori in Waitangi on 28 October 1835.

A new treaty between M?ori and UK entities is necessary. Him and Busby co-authored the contract and had it hurriedly published at M?ori Waitangi's contract was officially ratified on 6 February 1840 in front of Busby's home in Waitangi by members of the Crown of Great Britain and the chieftain of M?ori

In the course of the years the building and the area have been renovated and extended. An assembly building (whare r?nanga) which represents all trunks was added and presented to the New Zealand population on the occasion of the centennial of the treaty's signature in 1940.
