Auckland Anniversary Day is a public holiday observed in the northern half of the North Island of New Zealand.  The holiday usually falls on the Monday closest to 29 January, the anniversary of the arrival of William Hobson, later the first Governor of New Zealand, in the Bay of Islands in 1840.  The New Zealand Government Gazette of 26 January 1842 (Volume 2, 4th Edition) carried a notice stating,
“Saturday, the 29th instant, being the SECOND ANNIVERSARY of the establishment of the Colony, His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to direct that day to be held a GENERAL HOLIDAY, on which occasion the Public Offices will be closed.”
