I'm looking at my property on the local councils mapping site and would like to know if the LINZ bearings shown are true north or magnetic north. Anyone out there know which it is?

I'm trying to find a boundary peg or get a rough idea of where it is. I know where 3 are but not the last one. The last peg is 59° and 44m from a known one.

Thanks in advance

Been thinking about this and my guess would be that it would have to be true north as magnetic moves. So I'll work off true north.

True North, based on the NZGD2000.
