This image in Adventure in New Zealand was drawn by the New Zealand Company draughtsman, Charles Heaphy. It shows land at the Nelson settlement near present-day Motueka, looking north-east towards the Marlborough Sounds. The cattle in the foreground were added to show intending emigrants that this was good ‘level’ farming country.
