Mountains of New Zealand’s North Island
This orthorectified image reaches across New Zealand’s North Island, from the Raukumara Range (above) to Poverty Bay (below, in full image). The Raukumara Range lies north of Gisborne, near East Cape in New Zealand’s North Island. It forms part of the North Island’s main mountain chain, which runs north-northeast from Wellington to East Cape.
Poverty Bay is the largest of several small bays on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island to the north of Hawkes Bay. It stretches for 10 kilometres from Young Nick’s Head in the southwest to Tuaheni Point in the northeast. The city of Gisborne, visible here as a white area, is located on the northern shore of the bay.
