Happy Birthday Auckland, Nelson & Northland!

Tips and Tricks Gareth Morgan 29 January 2018

, ,

Today is Auckland, Nelson & Northland Anniversary Day, a day the top half of the North Island celebrate by taking the day off.

Nelson has got on the bandwagon and is also enjoying the day off. The top of the South Island has the day off to celebrate Nelson Anniversary Day. Is anyone working today?

Some fun facts about Auckland & Nelson Anniversary. Thanks, wikipedia & Google 🙂

  • The holiday usually falls on the Monday closest to 29 January, the anniversary of the arrival of William Hobson, in the Bay of Islands in 1840. (William Hobson later the first Governor of New Zealand)
  • The Auckland Anniversary Regatta, which takes place today has grown from an impromptu event involving a couple of rowboats to an annual extravaganza recognised as the largest one-day regatta in the world. As a yachting event, it pre-dates the more prestigious America’s Cup by 11 years. In 2008 400 boats entered, Sydney Australia Day Regatta had 120 entries, this gives an indication of the magnitude of this event. {https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland_Anniversary_Regatta}
  • Auckland’s sister cities include: Brisbane (Australia), Guangzhou (China), Hamburg (Germany), Fukuoka (Japan), Los Angeles(USA)
  • One in three Aucklanders own a boat but I’m not one of them 🙁
  • Nelson is further north than Wellington. Wellington (41°17′20″S 174°46′38″E), Nelson (41°16′15″S 173°17′2″E)
  • The geographical “centre of New Zealand” allegedly lies in Nelson; on a hilltop near the centre of the city.
  • Established in 1841 Nelson is the 2nd oldest city in NZ and the oldest in the South Island.
