  • At last after 50 years and hundreds of years of Maori knowledge scientists form Brown University have found the scientific proof of predicting volcanic activity in New Zealand . Maori knowledge is native knowledge only past on by speech Auckland New Zealand .So grateful for their research .

  • Beautiful campus grounds and buildings. Grounds are open to the public and are just the right size so it's not intimidating for those who cannot afford to walk a lot. A leisurely stroll should not last more than an hour. Free tours on weekdays. Street parking available for a fee.
