We’ve prepared a handy guide for anyone thinking about coming over for a visit, with in-depth information about transport, accomodation, things to do and places to see.

Take a sneak peek of what’s inside the New Zealand Liberation Museum – Te Arawhata.

THE TOWN OF Le Quesnoy

Founded in c.1150 and surrounded by 16th century walls, the town has a long and rich history.

You’ll find New Zealand street signs in the Old Town, and on the outskirts, on Rue du 11 Novembre 1918, is École Maternelle Docteur Averill. This pre-school is named after Leslie Averill, the first man up the ladder on the 4th of November 1918.

Outside the walled city, the beautiful lakes are popular in summer, and poppies flourish by the ramparts.

If you happen to visit in August, you might see two giant figures as part of a carnival. Pierrot Bimberlot was created in 1904, and in 2004 a giant Māori figure was created in accompaniment.
