New Zealand is also known for many famous landmarks, including the SkyTower and the Harbour Bridge. In your blog list 3 famous landmarks in New Zealand. Along with the name of each landmark provide a brief description of it. Where is the landmark located? In your opinion, why is it famous?
- The sky tower is a very tall building, that is located on Victoria Street, in Auckland City. The sky tower is the tallest building in Auckland City, so it is very easy to spot. It is a famous landmark in Auckland because first of all it is the tallest tower, when you're at the top of the building you can see almost everything in the city and last of all you can bungee jump from the top.
- Lake Taupo is also a famous landmark in New Zealand. It is a huge lake that is located in Waikato. I think that it is famous because it is place where you don’t only do fishing. You can Parachute, you can look at Volcanoes and you can look at the beautiful Rivers.
