marsland hill, New Plymouth, NZ

Marsland Hill is in New Plymouth, Taranaki, and affords a great view of the city and shoreline. The hill has an interesting history for those interested. You can click here to read about it.

There are memorials to fallen soldiers all across New Zealand. This fountain on Marsland Hill was dedicated to those in the Boer War (1899-1902). In 1979 it was moved to a pedestrian mall and then back in 1997 when the mall closed. For inscriptions, click here.


This memorial is for those lives lost in the Taranaki Land Wars. Click here for the story.


This carillon was built by George Kibby as a memorial to his wife Mabel. It plays 4 times a day and has a range of about 25 songs. Carillon photos by Hubby.
