A view of the hills

The best view of the hills near Otaki is from the cemetery attached to the Rangiatea Maori church. If you climb to the top of the graveyard, the views are very special.

The cemetery is fascinating, being the final resting place of many of the early Christian missionaries. It is the bi-centenary this year of the Christian Gospel arriving in New Zealand. As always, the sad reminder of the sacrifice of many of those early Christians; grave after grave of their young children who died of disease.
