Queen Elizabeth II 1926-2022

HM Queen Elizabeth II

On behalf of Kaikōura District Council I would like to extend our condolences to the Royal Family on the sad news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.


We acknowledge Queen Elizabeth’s remarkable service and devotion over her 70 year reign. Coming to the throne at the age of 25 years she reigned through decades of sometimes turbulent change with duty, stability and wisdom. She visited New Zealand ten times during her reign and will be fondly remembered by many for her warmth and sense of humour. She was an extraordinary woman who led an extraordinary life of service.

Flags at the Memorial Hall will fly at half mast as a mark of respect.

Mayor Craig Mackle
