Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Poll: Taking on your town's te reo name

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

A push to use Levin’s Māori name Taitoko has stalled and the councillor who backed the move says she’s surprised at the negative reaction to the idea.

In 2018 Horowhenua named its draft town centre strategy “Transforming Taitoko” and councillor Victoria Kaye-Simmons said it would also be nice to acknowledge the town's traditional name.

It has not featured since and Kaye-Simmons a faced backlash after speaking out.

What's the traditional Māori name for your town, and would you support its use?
