What is Kelly Tarltons underwater world?

What is Kelly Tarltons underwater world?

Kelly Tarltons is a huge underground Aquarium that was named after a man named Kelly Tarlton. Kelly was an underwater explorer that had found interesting things such as sea life, coral reefs and even dangerous sharks.

Kelly tarltons had a dream to build an underground Aquarium to show the people of New Zealand and the world what he had discovered in the water and so he did. It was built in 1985 and was first opened later that year. It was built close to Okahu Bay and there he found and brought in helpless sea creatures.

The reason why Kelly and his team wanted to help sea creatures was because our beaches were so polluted and filled with rubbish. So he had to help them and in doing that he created a healthy environment where they can live in peace. When Kelly finished the underwater aquarium he filled each attraction with water and designed each fish tank to suit each Sea creatures habitat so that it will be suitable for the sea creatures.

Kelly also was very fascinated with sharks and therefore his team caught them and transported them in to Kelly Tarltons. There are four different types of sharks at Kelly Tarltons. The Sand Tiger Shark, The Broadnose Sevengill, School shark and the Wobbegong sharks. All of these sharks are harmless to other sea creatures.

Weeks later after the creation of Kelly Tarltons, sadly Kelly Tarlton past away. But he passed on a big gift to tourists and local people of NZ. He also gave his underwater aquarium to the people to learn about the creatures of the sea.

Trip to Rewa's Village

On Wednesday 23 August 2017 the year, 7&8 Students from Glenbrae School had the opportunity to visit the historical place up on a small hill in Kerikeri called Rewa’s Village. Rewa’s Village is set up to be like a Maori Village before the Europeans came to New Zealand

As we approached the front a man with a Taiaha came walking down the hill coming to greet us, he was our tour guide for the day. After he introduced himself we all walked up the hill together.

After walking up the hill we entered the visitor center we went into a small room full of chiefs from the past, one of the chiefs from the past was our tour guides great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather which was one of the chiefs of their village a long time ago.

Afterwards, we made our way to a view outside where we could see the river and then the tour guide explained to us the story of the river. He told us that one of the chiefs from another part of NZ came all the way to Kerikeri with his warriors to battle their tribe and they were not successful because their tribe's leader got drowned by   Ngāti Rēhia's chief at the time.

Shortly after that story, we went took a short walk down a path to a place you will see in the picture above. So that's where we went and that's where he shared another historical story about his tribe and he was talking about the small house that was there in the right corner of the small land.
Then he explained to us what the small red house was on top of the pole was, he said it was a place to hide food or what they used it for was to hide jewelry and they put it on the long pole because it was out of from land animals and humans.

After that he allowed us to go three places, one was down a hill which leads to a place where a waka was, the next lead to the beach and the last lead to some houses.

Soon after our groups visited all the three places we came back to the same place and we sang a song to the tour guide then he said back to us as a thank you. Then we left the place back up to our vans and drove off.

On our way back to the campsite we stopped at McDonald's to buy some frozen coca - cola then we drove back to the campsite.
