Christchurch Branch Location
The Māori people, the first settlers of New Zealand before the first Europeans paved the way for the development we now see, have shared some interesting stories about the beginning of the country and its two main islands. They say that the South Island is the boat the demigod Maui used when he pulled the great fish (the North Island) from the waters. In Māori culture, the lesser island is named Te Waka a Maui which means “Maui’s Canoe”.
Perhaps it is Maui to be thanked for the breathtaking beauty that the South Island possesses.
