Strictly Roots – New Zealand

With the 150 anniversary of the Maori Representation Act next year, New Zealand is turning the spotlight on its roots — a new museum at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds (where the Maori’s land ownership was recognised in 1840) opened earlier this year.

The British and Irish Lions return in 2017 — their first visit to New Zealand in 12 years and the biggest sporting event in NZ since the Rugby World Cup in 2011. Ten matches over June and July across seven host cities — from Whangarei (Whangarei Falls above) to Dunedin — means you can see the sights while cheering on your team.
