with original Māori name
A hill near Tauranga popularly known as Mt Misery has had its Māori name, Maungatūtū, officially recognised.
After public consultation the New Zealand Geographic board put its recommendation to Land Information Minister Damien O'Connor, and he agreed with it.
"I'm pleased that we have this opportunity to restore the original Māori name for the maunga," O'Connor said.
The name Mount Misery has never been an official one but it is believed to have come into local use around a century ago, as locals struggled with poor farming conditions.
