Flickr update – Waikato, Nelson and you

Huntly power station – one of the photos you'll be seeing in the Waikato entry

Huntly power station – one of the photos you'll be seeing in the Waikato entry

Last time we blogged about Flickr, we were asking people for images for the Taranaki Places entry.

Busy as usual, we’ve moved on since then and will be launching the Waikato Places entry at the end of May. As usual, our Flickr friends have contributed dozens of fantastic images of the region. As well as images we’ve sourced from Flickr that will appear as part of the entry, we’ll also be staging our fifth Flickr exhibition (the link goes to our Otago Flickr exhibition). The Waikato exhibition isn’t online yet, but you can take a look at the exhibition pool to get an idea of what’s in store.

Now that the Waikato entry is well underway, we’ve started work on the Nelson entry. For Te Ara’s purposes, the Nelson region comprises Nelson city and Tasman district; the latter takes in Golden Bay, Abel Tasman National Park, Motueka, Murchison, Nelson Lakes and nearby areas.

We would love for you to start adding your Nelson photos to the Te Ara pool. We’re looking for photographs of Nelson landscape, culture and people, but in particular inland Nelson and Murchison are on our list. Thank you to the photographers who have already started adding images!

In a new feature, you can view thumbnails of recent additions to Te Ara’s Flickr pool at the bottom of Te Ara’s redesigned homepage ( which was launched in January).

    There are some images on the Harlequin Guide to Nelson. Would any of these be suitable for you ?

    Thanks very much for the link, Brian. I’ve passed your suggestion on to the Places resercher, Janine.
