Story: Hauraki–Coromandel places

View from Moehau

View from Moehau

The Moehau Range, with Moehau mountain (892 m) its highest point, forms the northern part of the Coromandel Peninsula. Its predominantly greywacke rock, combined with the high altitude and subalpine vegetation, make it similar to the ranges of the main divide in the lower North Island. This view from the summit of the range takes in Cape Colville, the northernmost point of the peninsula, and looks across to the southern coastline of Great Barrier Island (Aotea Island).
