New Zealand ports

This map shows the likely track of the Rosanna and the Lambton in 1826. While looking for a place for the first New Zealand Company settlers to live, Captain James Herd produced the first charts of Otago Harbour (Port Oxley), and Wellington Harbour (Port Nicholson). Herd also charted Port Pegasus (Southern Port) at Stewart Island, and the Hokianga, surveyed in 1822. Click on the names to see his charts.
