Ngā toi o Aotearoa

Kīia ai tēnei whakaahua ko ‘Mt Egmont, from the south’; koia nei tētahi o ngā taonga nui rawa o te ao toi o Aotearoa. Nā te kairūri whenua, kaitā o te Kamupene o Niu Tīreni, nā Charles Heaphy tēnei whakaahua i tā i te tau 1840. He maha ngā hapa o tēnei whakaahua, kei te hē te whakatakoto i te whenua. Hāunga tērā, ka mīharo tonu ki tāna i tā. I te mea he tauhōu a Heaphy ki tēnei whenua, ka mau mai e ia ōna ake ariā mō te āhua o tēnei whenua.
