Akarana returned to Australia (3 o 3)

Akarana returned to Australia

In 1987 the Akarana was purchased by the New Zealand government and restored in Auckland. In 1988, 100 years after it first crossed the Tasman, it was presented back to the Australian people to mark the bicentenary of European settlement there. New Zealand Prime Minister David Lange (left) and Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke (right) read a commemorative plaque marking the gift.
