The 1846 War in Wellington app features walking and driving tours of sites relating to the New Zealand Wars in and around Wellington. The information is based on David Green 'Battlefields of the New Zealand Wars: A Visitor's Guide', Penguin, 2010. This book provides clear directions to sites around the country as well as interpretation by one of the top historians of the New Zealand Wars period.

A comprehensive survey of the main battles of the New Zealand Wars including map locations for many sites, can be found on NZHistory:
