Kaikoura and Seaward Kaikoura Range, New Zealand

Description: Evening view from the tip of Kaikoura Peninsula towards Kaikoura township and Seaward Kaikoura Range with Mt Fyffe (1602m) on the right.
The Maori name Kaikoura translates to 'meal of crayfish' (Kai - food, koura - crayfish), and it is crayfish for which the region has traditionally been famous. The area's abundant food sources attracted Maori settlement, and the remains of several pa sites can still seen on the peninsula to this day.
