Want to know about New Zealand -New Zealand is an island country in the southWestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses – that of the North Island , or Te Ika-a-Māui , and the South Island , or Te Waipounamu – and numerous smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia , Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life; most notable are the large number of unique bird species . The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions.

PHL EMBASSY IN WELLINGTON VISITS FILIPINO-OWNED FRUIT AND VEGETABLE FARM IN LEVIN, NORTH ISLAND 16 April 2014 – As the Philippine Embassy in New Zealand continues to reach out to Filipinos, directly engage with them on their work, livelihood and stay in the North and South Islands, Philippine Ambassador to New Zealand Virginia H. Benavidez and the Philippine Embassy officers and staff and their families and friends visited Levin on March 23 and met with Mr. Mark and Ms. Ailyn Bevan, owners of the Big Toms Ltd. where fresh fruits and vegetables are sourced from their farm and also directly from fruit growers around the country. Together with Paul and Rosalyn, the siblings of Ailyn Bevan, they accompanied the Embassy group to a tour of their food and grocery located at the main road of Levin, explaining that the accessibility of the store and the availability of fresh and chemical-free fruits and vegetables attract many clients.

Evan Andrews got this email today... balances the others! Nice!: Dear Good Day: I wanted to write a quick note to thank you for your live feeds of Good Day. I look forward to watching the show and it gives me a "little piece of home" when I do. You see, I am a native Texan from the DFW area now residing on the North Island of New Zealand. There is truth to the old saying, "You can take me out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of me". Kiwis (New Zealanders) are fascinated with anything Texas and I am always eager to share my heritage with them. Many thanks again for bringing Texas just a little closer to me. Kind regards, Ron Otaki, New Zealand
ELEVENTH BAND ANNOUNCEMENT. Dead Dreamers ( Metalcore) THEY ARE COMING BACK! Since releasing their debut EP ‘This is an Awakening' in April 2012, they have played a large number of shows, booking their own tours, in order to share their unique blend of atmospheric metal/hardcore throughout the North Island. They were fortunate enough to move into a large House on the outskirts of Hamilton, which they turned into a safe haven for traveling bands. The house, which was nick named 'Dreamers Estate,' then started to host large house shows where bands such as Stray from the Path, In Hearts Wake, Antagonist AD, Depths and many more played, packing out the house on various occasions. Word about the house got out fast which lead to other international acts staying at the house during their NZ Tours. After a significant line up change Dead Dreamers released their debut full length album ‘No Closure For Open Ends' recorded by Nathan Sowter (Blindspott, Antagonist AD, Kids in Space) and mixed/mastered by Pete Ru ...

Today's Feature Commonwealth Country is Fiji Fiji, officially the Republic of Fiji; (Fijian: Matanitu Tugalala o Viti; Fiji Hindi: Ripablik ăph Phījī), is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles (2,000 km; 1,300 mi) northeast of New Zealand's North Island. Its closest neighbours are Vanuatu to the west, France's New Caledonia to the southwest, New Zealand's Kermadec to the southeast, Tonga to the east, the Samoas and France's Wallis and Futuna to the northeast, and Tuvalu to the north. The country comprises an archipelago of more than 332 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of circa 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Onu-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 860,000. The capital and largest city, Suva, is on Viti Levu. About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in sm ...
It’s been a record season for whio ducklings bred in captivity with 35 ducklings from three captive sites around New Zealand. Several captive breeding pairs around the country have had multiple clutches this season. The whio captive breeding programme involves birds from rivers around the central North Island with breeding sites at Pukaha Mt Bruce Wildlife Park, Orana Wildlife Park and Peacock Springs in Christchurch. Whio fledglings, three-month-old ducks, are being released at different sites around the Central North Island over the next week. Today six whio were released in the Tongariro area - four onto Tongariro River and two into Whakapapanui Stream – both locations chosen because of the ongoing predator trapping by local community groups. Representatives from DOC, Genesis Energy and Tongariro River Rafting were joined by high school students attending the Kiwi Forever week-long programme, students from Hastings Intermediate and a group from the Blue Duck Project Trust for the release.

Piha is New Zealand’s most famous surf beach. Situated on the West Coast of the North Island, 40 kms from the city of Auckland, this black iron-sand beach has a reputation for awesome surf which rolls in over the Tasman Sea. When Uncle Toby’s Iron Man contest was held at Piha in 1997, canoes were snapped in two and they’ve never come back. It can be moody, misty and mysterious, wild, wet and wind-swept. The power goes off, the phone lines come down, sometimes the road in (and out) gets blocked. Living here is not for the faint-hearted. Piha was the birthplace of malibu board riding in New Zealand, introduced by two Californian lifeguards in 1956. The first surf boat race held in New Zealand was at Piha in the 1930s. Piha has rips and currents and is very unforgiving of the foolhardy so it’s important to only swim in areas patrolled by surf clubs. Fisherman regularly die off the rocks, so check with the clubs before you venture out. Piha is not just surf and sand. With rugged cliffs and the majesti ...
The chorus of cicadas is expected to be out in full force this week as summery temperatures bring warm days and nights, across New Zealand. Although the mercury is rising, there will still be some wetter spells to watch out for. There is a wet start in store for the West Coast with a burst of heavy rain moving in from the Tasman Sea. Severe Weather Warnings are currently in place for the south of Westland and northern Fiordland until Tuesday morning. Although the heaviest rain will be about the ranges, some heavier falls are still likely near the coasts. The front responsible for this rain is forecast to weaken away as it moves north and dissipates over Cook Strait. "It was a sunny, summery weekend for many across the North Island and these conditions are likely to linger on this week" MetService meteorologist John Law said, "however, some warm moist humid air feeding in from the north will introduce some cloudier, drizzly weather to the far north and higher temperatures across the country". This week's d ...
It's probably no surprise that if "N" is for "North Island," then "S" would be for "South Island." As I noted earlier, there are actually many islands in the archipelago we call New Zealand. Auckland's 150 island constellation is only a small part of the 700 islands which are NZ. The actual southern-most land is Stewart Island (Rakiura) which is primarily a bird sanctuary which is home to penguins and kiwis. (South of SI, the next landfall is Antarctica.) The South Island proper is quite different from the more temperate northland. The people in Auckland described it as frigid, but in actuality, the average winter temperature is in the high forties. The terrain is greatly varied where the Pacific plate is sliding beneath the Australian and is still lifting the "Southern Alps" whose highest peak is Mt Cook which rises to 12,313 feet. Besides snow covered peaks, it has cold turquoise lakes (Queenstown), and rain forests where the tree ferns and beech forests are primeval and flow down from the treeless heig ...

In November 2012, Bryn and I met Manolo Mendez at Equitana. We watched him work his Oldenburg stallion Clint Eastwood and were so inspired by his calm and empathetic approach along with his passion for the wellness of the horse that we set out on a mission to bring him to New Zealand. 15 months later, 11 riders and 40 some spectators had the privilege to attend Manolo’s North Island clinic. With riders and horses of all levels, it has been an incredible learning experience to observe and listen to Manolo over the 3 days. We found ourselves not wanting our lessons to end. From working with an unfocused young horse to improving the piaffe, passage and pirouettes of a Grand Prix horse. Our minds are filled with his guiding analogies, pictures of him so cleverly animating an exercise and above all the simplicity of his approach to training. The results were undeniable. Manolo’s understanding of anatomy and biomechanics along with how the rider can negatively affect as well as positively correct the horse ...

"In the Western Pacific - Tropical depression Lingling is located approximately 344 nm west of Koror. New Caledonia cleans up after Tropical Cyclone June - New Caledonia's north is cleaning up after the area was struck by Tropical Cyclone June on Saturday. The system caused flooding and cut a number of roads. The storm also felled trees and cut power some communities. Saturday's flight schedules were also affected, with international flights delayed and some domestic services cancelled. The fast-moving cyclone weakened into a depression as it veered southwards and moved into cooler waters. Tropical cyclone June is expected to move onto the upper North Island later today. Since 2000, New Zealand has missed a number of major tropical storms, but the most recent damaging one was Cyclone Wilma in early 2011, which caused damage to parts of Northland and Coromandel. A number have reached New Zealand but have fizzled just a few hours before reaching land. Cyclone June is not expected to be as strong as Cyclone ...

Welcome to the 2014 working year!! Check out Regional Manager Paul Roache's view on the market at the start of the year. The residential real estate market in the lower North Island in 2013 has been steady, if not outstanding. For the most part of the year, there has been a shortage in property available for sale, which has kept some pressure on prices. With this situation, along with interest rates remaining low, and more confidence in regards to employment, things look to be tracking in a similar direction in 2014. In the latter part of the year (October 1), the Reserve Bank made a change to lending criteria (LVR's - Loan to Value Ratio Restrictions) in an attempt to slow a booming real estate market in Auckland and Christchurch, however, at this stage any marketable change has not been obvious. It appears real estate in New Zealand is still a preferred investment for mum and dad investors, as it remains relatively safe and they understand it. Days on market and sales columns are reasonably consis ...
Day 3 Hawke’s Bay New Zealand Yesterday we became acquainted with New Zealand and some of its features. Over the next few days we’ll travel to some of cities and do some exploring. Are you ready? Here we go... For those of you who enjoy the “fruit of the vine” and golf, you’ll want to pay attention! Hawke’s Bay is located on the East Coast of the country’s North Island. It’s recognized on the world stage for its award-winning wines. Captain James Cook named it in honor of Admiral Edward Hawke who decisively defeated the French at the Battle of Quiberon Bay. The climate offers the best weather for growing grapes, with hot summers and cool winters, dry and temperate. Missionaries in the mid-19th century planted the first vines and it is now becoming an important place for full bodied red wines. As of January 2010, there are an estimated 75 wineries located across Hawke’s Bay. Oncea year they host a three day wine and food festival that attracts many thousands of people. One of the most be ...
Just seen a programme that we recorded yesterday. It was James Nesbitt's view of New Zealand.

It hardly seems possible that we will soon be heading back there again to finish the holiday that we started this year. Looking forward to seeing a little bit more of Christchurch, as well as making it to North Island.

New Zealand boy, 11, fathers child to woman, 36 Agence France-Presse Posted at 06/15/2013 2:16 PM | Updated as of 06/15/2013 2:16 PM WELLINGTON - An 11-year-old New Zealand boy was reported Saturday to have fathered a child with the 36-year-old mother of a school friend, raising questions on why women cannot be charged with rape in the country. Counselors working in the area of child sexual abuse said the case highlighted a lack of attention to women as potential offenders, according to the New Zealand Herald, which reported the story. The case has also prompted an examination of the law, under which the crime of rape applies only to men. Justice Minister Judith Collins said she would investigate, the paper reported. "This case raises an important point. I will seek advice from officials on whether or not a law change is required," Collins said. The woman and boy, whose names were not released, live in the main North Island district of Auckland. The boy's school principal told the New Zealand Herald that ...

Extreme Weather in New Zealand on Thursday, Description More thunderstorms are in store for much of the North Island this afternoon and tomorrow. MetService has issued a severe thunderstorm watch which extends from Whangarei to Wanganui and Napier, with a moderate risk of severe thunderstorms and localised heavy downpours. Spokesman Dan Corbett said the low had already brought heavy downpours to Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Te Puke and from Taupo to the Gisborne ranges this afternoon. "Think of it like a big octopus, flailing its arms around like it's really mad, and the centre of its head would be sitting just north and east of Whangaparaoa,'' he said. "We have another day of it tomorrow and then it's getting the hint and moving off to the northeast of New Zealand.'' Short, thundery downpours could continue through the afternoon and evening before easing about 8pm, he said. "Driving home there could be some heavy spray in places, there's also some risk of some small hail. "If folks are heading in the ca ...

Trapped Japanese, New Zealand climbers die on mountain Wellington, New Zealand: A Japanese climber and his companion from Wellington died after being trapped in a snow cave on a New Zealand mountain for two nights in bitterly cold conditions, police said on Monday. Police identified the pair as 31-year-old Hiroki Ogawa, a Japanese geoscientist studying in New Zealand, and Nicole Sutton, 29 who perished on Mount Taranaki on the western side of the North Island. Sutton's father, Keith, told a media conference, where the deaths were confirmed, that he received a text from his daughter on Sunday night saying she did not think she would survive. Keith Sutton described Ogawa, an experienced mountaineer, as "a very special man" who tried to look after his daughter but "we know mountains are a nasty place when things go wrong". The climbers were in a relationship and they had hoped they would marry. Rescuers had been attempting to reach the pair since Saturday when other members of their climbing party managed to ...
Gisborne Airport: Runway With a Railway Crossing Gisborne Airport is a small regional airport that is located on the western outskirts of Gisborne, the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. The airport is one of the very few airports in the world that has a railway line intersecting the runway. The Gisborne airport which covers a land of 160 hectares has three grass runways and one main runway that is intersected by the Palmerston North - Gisborne Railway Line. The Wynyard Airport, on Tasmania's north-western coast, also had a railway crossing on the runway but declining rail traffic forced the closure of rail traffic in early 2005, and thus the Wynyard airport rail crossing is no more operational. gisborne-airport-1 At Gisborne, on the other hand, the rail route functions actively and so does the airport everyday between 6:30 in the morning and 8:30 at night. After that, the runway is sealed off till morning. The railway tracks splits the runway almost in the middle and very often trains or airc ...
The number of people living in New Zealand on census night was 4,242,048, which was 214,101 more than at the last census seven years ago, Statistics NZ announced today. “This means that, on average, the population has grown by about 31,000 people per year since the last census in 2006. This was slower growth than between 2001 and 2006, when the population grew by an average of about 58,000 per year,” Government Statistician Liz MacPherson said. The increase in population means that at the general election next year there will be a total of 71 electorates. There will be one new North Island electorate, up from 47 at the last election. The number of Māori electorates will stay at seven, and the number of general electorates in the South Island is fixed at 16 by the Electoral Act 1993. “Adding this new electorate means there will be one less list seat in the 120-seat parliament – excluding any overhang seats,” Ms MacPherson said. The general electoral population is 2,867,110 for the North Island a ...

Drought Responsible for 2 Million Fewer NZ Lambs The drought that hit New Zealand's North Island earlier this year is responsible for 2 million fewer lambs being born this spring, Beef+Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) said. According to the annual B+LNZ Economic Service stock number survey, this spring's lamb crop is expected to be down 7.7 percent to 24.43 million. Andrew Burtt, chief economist of Economic Service, said the drought conditions affected ewe condition at mating and, consequently, scanning results were variable across the North Island. "We're expecting lambing percentages to be down by up to 20 percentage points in the regions worst hit by drought in the north. The South Island fared better and scanning results were down only a few percentage points - and that's against last season, which was favorable in the south,"

WEATHER UPDATE FROM TV 3. WELLINGTON IONS IT'S AWFUL OUT THERE SO STAY INDOORS. STAY SAFE! A band of torrential showers, freezing temperatures, hail, thunderstorms and damaging winds which have covered the South Island are now battering the North. Gales are howling into Wellington, damaging buildings, downing trees and causing power outages affecting up to 30,000 homes across the region. Wellington Electricity has confirmed attempts are being made to safely restore power supply, but delays are likely.

''Potentially we're talking about a very significant weather event, possibly the worst I've seen in 20 years.'' stuff.co.nz
What is New Zealand Famous For New Zealand is famous for its indigenous people, the Maori. Descendents of Polynesian explorers who settled the Pacific Ocean more than 1000 years ago, the Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa - Land of the Long White Cloud. Maori tattoos - often covering the entire face of a male, known as ta moko - are also famous. Opera diva, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa - who sung at Prince Charles of England's wedding to Lady Diana Spencer - is Maori. New Zealand's famous rugby team, the All Blacks, are also famous because they perform a traditional war dance, the haka, before every test match. Oscar winner, Russell Crowe has Maori heritage, he descends from the Ngati Porou tribe through his mothers mother. New Zealand is also famous for its spectacular landscapes. South Island's scenery consists of plains, fjords, forests, mountains and Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. North Island is known for its volcanoes and for its geothermal activity. Many movie productions have chosen to make films in New ...
THE story of the Revivals which began in the Auckland Province of North Island, New Zealand, demonstrates very clearly how Revival may be expected in any part. A cablegram received in London and published in The Christian, summed up the work fairly well. It was signed by the Rev. A. S. Wilson, author of Faith's Fight and other well-known books, whose reputation as a preacher is better known in the Southern Hemisphere. "Extraordinary New Zealand Revival begun during Orr's ministry at Ngaruawahia Easter Keswick and other camps. Hundreds publicly confessing sin, scores of conversions resulting, with sanely intense meetings of tireless crowds continuing till approaching midnight. Ngaruawahia missionary pledges and offerings Sunday approximately two thousand pounds. - A. S. Wilson." But to go back to beginnings. Jack Sherriff and I arrived in Auckland Harbour (on the M.V. Rangitane) on April 6, which happened to be Tuesday. We had no Monday that week, owing to the crossing of the international date-line east o ...

North Island and South Island videos are coming soon. I've had 5 of the best weeks of my life travelling around New Zealand. I've seen some incredible things…
For our honeymoon, Karen and I are looking at driving around the South Island of New Zealand, as bizarrely neither of us have been there yet, although I have seen the North Island, which I adored. The question would be to all you NZ fans, where are the 'not to be missed' places we need to include on our trip, and will two weeks be enough? I want to see snow, mountains, rivers and feel like I'm in Lord of the Rings :-)

Sitting here watching the sun rise over Lake Taupo here on the North Island of New Zealand enjoying a cup of plunger coffee. The sun is trying to poke through the thick overcast clouds on this early winter morning. There it is, the sun broke through. As the waters of Tapuaeharuru Bay splash across the beach, the life giving force of the sun splashes across its hills. Taupo is a lake the size of the London metro area created by a massive volcanic blast roughly 1,800 years ago. The Lake is part of the Taupo volcanic zone and joined by its sister active volcano Mount Tongariro just 12 miles southwest.

Yellowtail Kingfish: This is another species that put New Zealand on the map as a major sport fishing destination. Kingies reach their maximum size in New Zealand with almost all world records coming from our waters. The all tackle world record stands at 52kg, a size of fish that is held equally in both 15 and 24kg line classes. Both fish came from the Bay of Plenty. These big powerful fish are relatively plentiful and easy to target, but landing them is another story altogether as they are virtually unstoppable and normally inhabit relatively foul areas. The hot spots are the Three Kings islands, White island and the Ranfurly bank off East Cape. They are found consistently throughout the top half of the North Island in good numbers and as far south as the Marlborough sounds at the top of the South Island. They can be caught year round with winter fish tending to be less common but generally larger. Summer is the best time to target kingfish. They are usually found around rocky headlands, reefs and deepwa ...

History of the original New Zealand flag. . The confederation was convened in 1834 by British Resident James Busby. Busby was sent to New Zealand in 1833 by the Colonial Office to serve as the official British Resident, and was anxious to set up a framework for trade between Māori and Europeans; the Māori chiefs of northern part of the North Island agreed to meet with him in March 1834. Rumours began spreading that the Frenchman, Baron Charles de Thierry, was going to set up an independent state at Hokianga. The United Tribes declared their independence on 28 October 1835 with the signing of the Declaration of Independence.[1] In 1836, the British Crown under King William IV recognized the United Tribes and its flag. Busby's efforts were entirely too successful – as the islands settled down, the British began to consider an outright annexation. In February 1840, a number of chiefs of the United Tribes convened at Waitangi to sign the Treaty of Waitangi. Pounamu.

Beautiful Māori.read it here..let our culture mover you.. New Zealand teenager Maia Westrupp has an international scholarship with Melbourne Related MELBOURNE'S new recruiting manager Jason Taylor is rapt the Demons have secured promising New Zealander Maia Westrupp on an international scholarship. Not only does the 18-year-old from Whakatane on New Zealand's North Island have enough athletic talent to make him a worthwhile investment, Taylor said the club's initiative reflected the capacity of the Demons' off-field team to make things happen. But because Taylor sits on the same reality bus as coach Mark Neeld, he is wary about overstating what Westrupp – a talented junior tennis, volleyball and rugby player – might deliver in time.
On behalf of Shearing Sports New Zealand February 7, 2013 Buoyed Stratford ready for shears champs breakthrough Invercargill shearer Nathan Stratford will be looking for a major breakthrough for South Island shearing when he tackles the Open competition at the Otago Shearing and Woolhandling Championships in Balclutha tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. With domination by mainly by Te Kuiti legend David Fagan and Napier gun John Kirkpatrick, no South Island shearer has won the competition’s Open title in the 21st Century. Stratford has missed the final in the last two years, but reached four of the previous eight showdowns, with best placings of third in 2004 and 2007. But a whiff of a breakthrough came when he won another North Island dominated event four weeks ago, the national longwool title in Lumsden. He says he’s buoyed by that success, and keen for another battle with Kirkpatrick with whom he will also be shearing for New Zealand against Wales on Saturday in the second Elders Primary Wool Shearing ...

It was written by Janet Smith, a BSc student from Nelson. I worked on it with the women of Te Wai Pounamu College in Ferry Road.

• The volcano named Mount Tongariro of New Zealand on 21 November 2012, erupted with a brief blast of dark ash that causes canceling flights but causing no significant damage. • The eruption of Mount Tongariro, its second in less than four months, sent a dark ash plume about 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) into the sky. • Authorities issued a no-fly alert above the mountain located in the sparsely populated area of central North Island. • Tongariro National Park has three active volcanoes, is a popular tourist destination and was the backdrop for many scenes in “The Lord of the Rings” movies. • Civil defense authorities were advising people in the region to remain indoors and shut their windows to avoid the ash, which could be a health hazard. • New Zealand lies on the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire” and has frequent geothermal and seismic activity.

The volcano made famous in Peter Jackson's THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy as the evil wasteland of Mordor erupted on Wednesday on New Zealand's North Island. "It was completely unexpected, there were no warning signs beforehand," a spokeswoman for GNS Science, the country's official monitoring service told AFP.

Sarah Rowland Jones Here is the Archbishop's News from New Zealand - 8 Sunday 4 October - Yesterday I observed a Sabbath from writing. Sunday was a day for ACC members to have ‘Mission Encounters’: through worship, conversation and hospitality at the invitation of churches in Auckland and the wider Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. So on Saturday evening I travelled from Auckland to Wellington on the southern tip of North Island, and stayed overnight with Tony and Susan Browne, delightful and hospitable hosts. They gave a great dinner, over which I enjoyed meeting some of their colleagues and friends. On Sunday morning Canon Jenny Wilkens, the priest in charge, also gave me a warm welcome at St Paul’s Cathedral and showed me the ropes . The Cathedral is situated opposite the Houses of Parliament, rather like our St George’s Cathedral in Cape Town. I enjoyed preaching at both the 8am and 10am services today and appreciated the parish lunch afterwards. I shared a thirty minutes ...

David and I are on the ferry going from Wellington on the North Island of New Zealand to Picton on the South Island. We had a wonderful four days in Sydney, Australia, although it wasn't nearly long enough. We took a day trip to the Blue Mountains, which was awesome! Flew to Aukland on Monday and had dinner with an old friend, now on to the South. Communications to the States are sketchy, at best. No telephone; e-mail has been nonexistent until now. I hope everything is well with all our family and friends (Andrea hang onto that baby until we get back!). Love to you all.

^ ^ Volcano awakes from 115-year sleep Surprise eruption of Mount Tongariro throws up ash cloud; flights cancelled NEW ZEALAND Agence France-Presse at Mount Tongariro Aug 08, 2012 A New Zealand volcano has erupted unexpectedly after lying dormant for more than a century, spewing an ash plume that disrupted flights and closed roads. The Mount Tongariro volcano, in the middle of North Island, erupted just before midnight on Monday in the first significant activity at the site since 1897, the official monitoring body GNS Science said. Police said witnesses reported "flame-like explosions and a cloud of ash coming from a new hole in the side of the mountain". Resident David Bennett told Fairfax Media: "There were rocks being thrown out. It was like thunder and lightning and fireworks. It was spectacular." Civil Defence said the eruption did not result in any lava flows, but sent a cloud of ash 6,100 metres into the atmosphere. While Civil Defence officials did not order any evacuations, they advised residents ...

Its the story the illegal state of israel NEVER wants released. They empowered Hitler to start extermination against ordinary jews to cover the sins of the Khazari jews (rothschild, rockefella, saxe coburg, vicksberg etc). This gave them the sympathy of the world and opened their way back into palestine. They are trying to preserve the Davidic divine right to rule. The United States of Australia and New Zealand, a pro zionist monarchy preserving the oligarch while fulfilling scripture thus resheepling us. Hypnosis of a mass scale using new age prophets for profit like David Icke, Wilcock, Jones, Fulford, Crane, Drake all trained at the tavistock institute as part of the new age in filtration of the truth movement. If they knew anything they would be dead. Ask Kennedy, Malcolm X, John Lennon, Gandhi, Bruce Lee, Martin Luther King, Lincoln and even Jesus. The spiral that is found in all indigenous cultures. Hypnotiscm. The order of the snake.

I wonder if this will have any bearing on the North Island having some shakes??? UFO watchers claim there's been an increase in sightings - with a cluster in the Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Northland and Auckland. Spokeswoman, Suzanne Hansen, has told Newstalk ZB's Larry Williams the sightings can't be explained away as natural phenomena - including large orange lights around the size of a helicopter. "We've also had sightings of triangular objects with lights that delineate the shape, objects that have got light configurations that are not those required by law in New Zealand for aircraft to have, so they're very different."

A Spectacular view: The Waitomo Caves! The Waitomo Caves are a village and cave system forming a major tourist attraction in the northern King Country region of the North Island of New Zealand, 12 kilometres northwest of Te Kuiti. The community of Waitomo Caves itself is very small, though the village has many temporary service workers living there as well. The word Waitomo comes from the Māori language wai meaning water and tomo meaning a doline or sinkhole; it can thus be translated to be water passing through a hole. These Caves are believed to be over two million years old...
