East Cape

A fine, white, cast-iron lighthouse caps the tip of the East Cape, which forms the right flank of the Bay of Plenty. Maori culture remains strong in this isolated part of the North Island, where the acclaimed movie Whale Rider was filmed. The coast and its small fishing communities give way inland to the high Raukumara Range and the rugged, forested Te Urewera area that extends into the Hawke's Bay region.
