Poverty Bay flats with Young Nicks Head in the distance. The region is a veritable patchwork of vineyards and orchards. Land uses here are so varied because of the highly fertile soil and moderate climate makes so many forms of agriculture and horticulture financially viable. This photo was taken form the lookout above Greys Bush (on the back Ormond Road) for a wonderful view.  ©

Gisborne Harbour, New Zealand

Situated below Kaiti (Titirangi) Hill the Port of Gisborne and its scenic harbour is host to both local and overseas vessels.

The port is a fascinating place for you to visit, with cafes and restaurants where you can relax and enjoy a coffee or fine cuisine.  ©

Gisborne city River Confluence

Gisborne is built around the confluence of three rivers in the heart of the city... Turanganui, Waimata & Taruheru.

Beside the Gazebo (painted Green and centre of photo above) on Reads Quay stands the plaque that marks the site of Captain Read's Store and Jetty. Captain Read was the well known trader responsible for much of Turanga's (now known as Gisborne) development from 1852 until the 1870's. During this period most commercial trading centered on this river site. From here you can observe the confluence of the Waimata, Taruheru and the shortest river in the Southern Hempisphere - the Turanganui River (1200 metres).  ©
