South Island high country land reform 1992-2015
A summary of high country tenure review outcomes since 1992. New Zealanders have long treasured their land, with poets (Bracken, 1893) and prime ministers calling it ‘God’s Own Country’, or Godzone for short. On his visit to New Zealand in 1897 Mark Twain wrote: ‘The people are Scotch. They stopped here on their way from home to heaven – thinking they had arrived’ (Twain, 1897).
