New Zealand has celebrated Waitangi Day and the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Numerous services were held around the country to remember this important day in our history.

Around 2500 people gathered at Waitangi, the home of the Treaty. The highlight of the day was the dawn service and a following free breakfast at Waitangi served by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and other government officials for people at the service.

On the South Island, the Okains Bay Museum Waitangi Day Commemorations were held on Saturday. It has been a signature event on the New Zealand calendar since the museum first opened in 1977.
