Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

The legislative offices of the New Zealand Parliament are housed in the building to the left in this photo. It's known as "the beehive" for obvious reasons - it's a name that's caught on to the point that even the government Web site is beehive.govt.nz. Designed by British architect Sir Basil Spence, it opened in 1981.
