Netherlands Embassy's public events in New Zealand

On Expedition with Abel Tasman!

The Netherlands Embassy staff teach an interactive lesson plan called “On Expedition with Abel Tasman” to children between 9 and 11 years old. Children go on an imaginary expedition to learn how Abel Tasman’s crew navigated, what life on the ships was like and what happens when different cultures meet. The Embassy’s lesson plan is available to all teachers and schools around New Zealand. To receive this free teaching material, please contact us at
