Shipwrecks now official historic places

Two shipwrecks in shallow waters off the coast of North Taranaki have been officially registered as historic places.

The paddle steamer Tasmanian Maid, and the steam ship SS Alexandra, were both used for service in the New Zealand Wars in the 1860s.

The vessels sank within three years of each other - one hitting a reef, the other a rock.
