New Zealand facts & history in brief
New Zealand Map
is one of the main crossing over the
Southern Alps, named after Arthur Dudley Dobson,
who, with his brothers were the first
Europeans to cross it in 1864 after the
Maori chief, Tarapuhi told him about
the existence of the pass.
A highway was built through the pass
during the gold rush on the West Coast.
It is still an important crossing between
the east and west coasts.
