Notes on the Geography of New Zealand: Nelson: Photo 5
There are some interesting memorials in the church, however. The name Brunner hints at Swiss ancestry, though this Brunner was born in Oxford and emigrated to New Zealand when he was 20. Five years later he spent 550 days on a journey south about 300 miles to a point on the west coast near Paringa. For this journey, recorded in the journal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1850, he won the Society's Patron's Medal.
If that doesn't do it for you, inspect the fine marble-bit terrazzo.
