Exterior: Auckland War Memorial

I mentioned a while ago that I had visited the Auckland War Museum but I never posted the pictures, so here it is. These are from the outside, obviously. It sits up on hill overlooking the city and harbour. There is actually an ordinance preventing any buildings being built between it and the bay so that ships coming in can see it standing alone on the hill. The whole Domain is consecrated land and says to "tread not" unless done in respect of the people of this land. It's pretty impressive.
