The Cook Landing Site National Historic Reserve is located on Kaiti Beach Road in Gisborne.
It commemorates the first European landfall and meeting with Māori in New Zealand (1769). Since, the landing site has changed dramatically, although it continues to be recognised as a place of national significance.
Cook’s Cove Walkway is situated at the southern end of Tolaga Bay, 52 km north of Gisborne.
The teaching resource provides background information on the history and conservation management of Cook’s Landing Site National Reserve and Cook’s Cove Walkway.
