New edition of ‘Nation Dates’ in progress | NationDatesNZ

The second edition of Nation Dates is under way! We want the book to be the best reflection of our history and identity as a nation. Therefore, we are eager to hear your thoughts on other dates and events that are significant to the shaping of New Zealand.

Some of the suggestions we have already received include;

1777 – Rabbits introduced
1809 – Boyd incident
1904 – First use of the kiwi as an unofficial symbol of the nation
1944 – Annual leave introduced
2011 – Rena oil spill

Any new dates will be most welcome. Please post suggestions on the feedback page. We look forward to hearing from you!
