Auckland love tale

The legend of Tāmaki Makaurau

Often referred to as "Tāmaki of a thousand lovers", this area near Auckland is a place that’s highly sought after for its fertile volcanic soils. Legend has it that an ancient love story brought about a fierce battle of incantations. So fierce, it created deep cracks in the earth, thrusting upwards the many volcanic cones scattered across the region today.
