Today marks the anniversary in which, under the direction of Governor Hobson, Auckland became the Capital of New Zealand 175 years ago.
The Tāmaki Herenga Waka Festival has taken place for the first time this weekend.
The festival is an opportunity for Tāmaki to rejoice and unite. Ethnicities from many countries have attended the event to gain an insight into the Māori world.
